9780044403630: Being Fat is Not a Sin

An examination of the social and psychological implications of being fat for overweight women. It looks at the prejudiced ways in which society perceives and treats fat women, and the suffering of those women through feelings of guilt, inhibition and isolation. The author exposes discrimination by questioning surgeons and dieticians who confess their vested interest in encouraging women to want to be thin. She reveals that prejudice, rather than scientific fact, makes them condemn fat women as unhealthy. Shelley Bovey is a freelance journalist who has also trained as a teacher and made documentaries and features for Radio 4.
