What is the feminist “fat liberation” movement in the U.S?
The “Fat Liberation Manifesto” 1973, naming fat oppression as sexist and accusing 'the so-called ‘reducing’ industries' for harming public health.
The Fat Liberation Manifesto warns about the dangers of dieting programs and developed an analysis of the oppression of fat women.The goal of the 'Fat Liberation Manifesto' is to make feminists, who are a fat thick chick feeling like a Barbie-doll and a fashion-model.
The feminist 'Fat Liberation Manifesto' did not work out as expected. There are feminists, who diet.
'Size Acceptance' remains a controversial feminist issue.
Regretfully for many feminists, there is a certain attention towards Russian, Latina and Asian women and a thoughtful body-image preference to thin women by the majority of Caucasian men.
