Fat liberation: Power in the face of anti-fat bias

Did you know that an estimated 90 percent of women and 50 percent of men are dissatisfied with their bodies? That two in three girls under age 13 are already on a diet or considering going on one? That being labelled as fat is for most teenagers a fear that outranks fears of homelessness, terrorism, and death? Why are we so unhappy with our bodies? What makes us so fearful of being seen as fat, and so antagonistic toward fat bodies? And is there anything we can do about these fears?

Join us as we investigate and discuss contemporary and historical issues around fatphobia, and what we can do to dismantle our fear and bias against larger bodies. See you there!

This event is open to the public.
