Fat is a Feminist Issue

I am doing my final project on fat positive feminism. I explore this through a personal documentary I made about my life as a fat girl growing up in a weight obsessed society. I use news clips, personal stories, pictures and music to show the many different ways prejudice can take shape when aimed at fat people. Sometimes unwittingly, sometimes with incredible purpose. By exploring these issues, I hope to open up your eyes to the constant attack that goes on at fat people all day everyday. It is the last truly acceptable discrimination in this country and by examining why, I hope to inspire action in others to change their attitudes towards the dreaded fat people.
