Fat Liberation: Power in the Face of Anti-Fat Bias

Friday, November 19th, 2021*, 9:00 PM CST

Did you know that an estimated 90% of women and 50% of men are dissatisfied with their bodies? That two of three girls under the age of 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 or death? 

Why are we so unhappy with our bodies? What makes us so fearful of being seen as fat, and so antagonistic towards fat bodies? And is there anything we can do about these fears? 

Join us this November 19 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!
