In Fattily Ever After Stephanie Yeboah speaks openly about her own experience on navigating life as a Black plus-sized woman - telling it how it really is - and how she has managed to find self-acceptance in a world where judgement and discrimination are rife.
"The truth is, body positivity is for white women. White female bodies being safe is paramount to maintaining white supremacy." (Stephanie Yeboah, 2017)
Twenty-nine-year-old plus-size blogger Stephanie Yeboah has experienced racism and fat-phobia throughout her life. From being bullied at school to being objectified and humiliated in her dating life, Stephanie's response to discrimination has always been to change the narrative around body-image and what we see as beautiful.
Featuring stories of every day misogynoir and being fetishised, to navigating the cesspit of online dating and experiencing loneliness, Stephanie shares her thoughts on the treatment of Black women throughout history, the marginalisation of Black plus-sized women in the media (even within the body-positivity movement) whilst drawing on wisdom from other Black fat-liberation champions along the way. Peppered with insightful tips and honest advice, this inspiring and powerful audiobook is essential listening for a generation of Black plus-sized women, helping them to live their life openly, unapologetically and with confidence.
