Summary
  • If you are interested in giving up your diet, throwing out your scales, and concentrating on who you are on a deeper level, this book shows you how to accept, appreciate, and even love your body! Using statistics, research, anecdotes, and personal experiences, Fat - A Fate Worse Than Death? explores how appearance standards have built a prison for women. With the book's helpful advice, reading suggestions, and list of more than 100 ways to fight looksism, sexism, ageism, and racism, you will learn to express your rights and needs, regardless of your shape or size, and tear down those prison walls
  • Designed to transcend the boundaries between the personal and the political, Fat - A Fate Worse Than Death? discusses how women are disempowered by concentration on weight and appearance, how concentrating on appearance leaves real-life issues unaddressed, how feeling bad about yourself can turn you into a willing consumer, the national "War on Fat", counteracting societal influences that support weight preoccupation, nurturing your body, and resisting male-defined standards of beauty for women. Women who are fed up with living silently in a society that degrades and discounts them because of their physical stature should read Fat - A Fate Worse Than Death? and learn to not only value themselves for who they are, but also to counteract American culture's equality-denying prejudices and practices
