SheMoreIn Fat and Proud, activist Charlotte Cooper charts the evolution of the fat rights movement. Demonstrating the extent of fatphobia in society, she explains not only how it affects fat women, but how the fear of being fat oppresses all women. She also looks at health issues, challenging the medicalization of fat people and exposing the myths and dangers of dieting and thinness.

Throughout are the voices of fat women relating their experiences of discrimination and pain--but also their affirmations of positive self-image and esteem. Fat and Proud represents a coming to power of the fat rights movement- it calls for a greater appreciation of body-size diversity, so that all of us might live in and enjoy our bodies without fear or shame.
