Body Positivity Liebe Deinen K Rper

Megan Jayne Crabbe Knaur Balance eBook Health & Fitness

Das Praxis- und Umdenkbuch zum Trendthema Body Positivity von einer der Key Influencer und als @bodyposipanda weltweit bekanntem Instagram-Star. Body Positivity ist eine neue gesellschaftliche Bewegung. Sie kommt aus den USA und will erreichen, dass wir unseren Körper als einzigartig annehmen, ihn gut behandeln und Frieden mit ihm schließen. Megan Jayne Crabbe ist die bekannteste Vertreterin dieses weltweiten Trends. Megan's Probleme mit dem Gewicht und der eigenen Körperwahrnehmung begannen, als sie fünf Jahre alt war. In ihrer Kindheit wollte sie um jeden Preis schlank bleiben und erkrankte mit 14 Jahren an Anorexie. Nach einer Erholungsphase folgten weitere Jahre mit Diäten und anschließendem Jojo-Effekt. Bis sie Body Positivity entdeckte. Sie beendete alle Diäten, lernte ihren Körper anzunehmen und entkam so dem Size-Zero-Wahn. "Body Positivity - Liebe deinen Körper" ist zum Teil ein Memoir, wo Megan über ihre Veränderung berichtet, zum Teil ein praktischer Ratgeber, der Übungen und Anregungen zur eigenen Veränderung bietet und zum Teil eine Analyse der gesellschaftlichen und medialen Einflüsse, die das sogenannte "body shaming" auslösen. Megan widmet ihr Buch jeder Frau, die sich jemals schlecht in ihrem Körper gefühlt hat und sich gefragt hat, ob das Leben einfacher und cooler wäre, wenn sie nur irgendwie "besser" aussehen würde. Mit ihrem unnachahmlichen Charme, bissigem Humor und einer rebellischen Haltung plädiert die Autorin für eine Welt ohne Bikini-Körper-Diäten und einen liebevollen Blick auf sich selbst.

What We Don T Talk About When We Talk About Fat

Aubrey Gordon Beacon Press Social Science

From the creator of Your Fat Friend and co-host of the Maintenance Phase podcast, an explosive indictment of the systemic and cultural bias facing plus-size people. Anti-fatness is everywhere. In What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About Fat, Aubrey Gordon unearths the cultural attitudes and social systems that have led to people being denied basic needs because they are fat and calls for social justice movements to be inclusive of plus-sized people’s experiences. Unlike the recent wave of memoirs and quasi self-help books that encourage readers to love and accept themselves, Gordon pushes the discussion further towards authentic fat activism, which includes ending legal weight discrimination, giving equal access to health care for large people, increased access to public spaces, and ending anti-fat violence. As she argues, “I did not come to body positivity for self-esteem. I came to it for social justice.” By sharing her experiences as well as those of others—from smaller fat to very fat people—she concludes that to be fat in our society is to be seen as an undeniable failure, unlovable, unforgivable, and morally condemnable. Fatness is an open invitation for others to express disgust, fear, and insidious concern. To be fat is to be denied humanity and empathy. Studies show that fat survivors of sexual assault are less likely to be believed and less likely than their thin counterparts to report various crimes; 27% of very fat women and 13% of very fat men attempt suicide; over 50% of doctors describe their fat patients as “awkward, unattractive, ugly and noncompliant”; and in 48 states, it’s legal—even routine—to deny employment because of an applicant’s size. Advancing fat justice and changing prejudicial structures and attitudes will require work from all people. What We Don’t Talk About When We Talk About Fat is a crucial tool to create a tectonic shift in the way we see, talk about, and treat our bodies, fat and thin alike.

The Power Of Plus

Gianluca Russo Chicago Review Press Social Science

"The Power of Plus will leave you feeling inspired, motivated, and ready to push for real change, as well as confident and encouraged to embrace yourself, just as you are. This is essential reading for anyone who truly cares about the future of fashion, and for anyone who believes in the power of being yourself." —Versha Sharma, editor in chief, Teen Vogue Plus-size fashion revolutionizes the way women view themselves and their bodies. Exclusivity runs within the foundation of fashion. While calls for diversity have intensified recently, long-held attitudes are only beginning to change. But through social media, plus-size people have been able to create supportive communities that show their confidence, strength, and beauty. Plus-size fashionistas have been writing their own narrative for the past three decades, creating a market all on their own that is now worth more than $21 billion. The Power of Plus features interviews with trailblazers such as Tess Holliday, Emme Aronson, Gabi Gregg, and more as it follows the evolution of plus-size fashion from its start on small blogs to its current boom, examining the way this market has changed women's relationships with their bodies and how plus-size fashion is integral to the future success of the industry. Plus-size fashion is not a PR stunt. It is a culture-changing market created by and for the people who have always deserved to feel stylish but never had the visibility to be . . . until now. By honoring our progress so far, The Power of Plus celebrates the next stage of the plus-size fashion movement.
