Size Discrimination

A body-positive documentary film intent on inspiring change, “Fattitude,” created by Lindsey Averill and Viridiana Lieberman, focuses on real-life solutions for changing the national conversation about body image. Informed by “postmodern, post-colonial, feminist perspectives,”the film also examines how fat-shaming crosses lines of race, class, sexuality and gender. Diverse voices include academic scholars, activists, filmmakers, actors and psychologists, such as Lindy West, Sonya Renee Taylor, Virgie Tovar, Ricki Lake, and more. The film’s website offers additional interesting resources.
