The average UK dress size is 14 — 16 and yet the media feeds us a diet of skinnier = better.
Our panel discussed the rise of fat activism, the politics of size, and ask whether fat is still a feminist issue.
The panellists were fat activists Charlotte Cooper, Isha Reid and Caroline Walters, and the discussion was chaired by leading fat studies academic, Corinna Tomrley.
This session was part of the Women Of The World Festival at the Southbank Centre, 6-10 March 2013 in London.
