The Fat Fight


Robin Marantz Henig and Jess Zimmerman (of Dove’s Campaign for Real Beauty Fame) wrote a piece about bodies, fat and the mother-daughter relationship.

It pushed about every button I have. I’ve been in an internal debate with myself ever since I read it last week: as the mother, as the daughter, as the writer, as the health conscious, as the overweight one, as the girl advocate, as the typically aesthetic one, and as the spiritual being in a physical body.

I’ll encourage you to have your own emotional reaction when you read The Fat Fight on

I invite you to come back to The Girl Revolution and tell me what you think. I’d love to hear what other readers, mothers and daughters think about the fat issue.
