What is Fat Activism and why is it important?

Charlotte Cooper, a fat activist with around 30 years experience, answers this question by lifting the lid on a previously unexplored social movement and offering a fresh perspective on one of the major problems of our times.

In her expansive grassroots study she:

    • Reveals details of fat activist methods and approaches and explodes myths

    • Charts extensive accounts of international fat activist historical roots going back over four decades

    • Explores controversies and tension in the movement

    • Shows that fat activism is an undeniably feminist and queer phenomenon

    • Explains why fat activism presents exciting possibilities for anyone interested in social justice

Fat Activism: A Radical Social Movement  is a rare insider's view of fat people speaking about their lives and politics on their own terms. It is part of a new wave of accessible, accountable and rigorous work emerging through Research Justice and the Para-Academy.
