Fat Justice and Feminism
Start Date: 3/20/2014Start Time: 4:30 PM
End Date: 3/20/2014End Time: 6:00 PM

Event Description:
Nicole Sullivan and Cora Segal, two Boston-based feminist organizers, will lead a workshop on fat justice, which is a political stance that seeks to address the ongoing exploitation and oppression of fat people. From the war on obesity to the rise of deadly bariatric surgery, there is an unprecedented attack on fat bodies. This workshop seeks to map out the focal points of this oppression, while delving into the complex history of white supremacy and misogyny that created it. We will set forth an analysis and call to action to make fat justice a priority in women's movements.

Refreshments provided.
