Columnist, educator and female body consultant Jill Andrew took the stage recently to deliver a TEDx Talk on Fat Shaming and the “Thin Epidemic.”
In her 10 minute talk Jill discusses fat shaming and the power of words. Jill share’s a very personal experience that happened to her in her youth and then she goes full steam into discussing how fat gets framed negatively and how that impacts people’s lives! She talks fat euphemisms, “plus size” fat fashion, and fat talk.
This isn’t the first that we’ve heard from Jill Andrew and we’re sure it’s not going to be the last.
The body image activist is the founder/director of BITE ME! Toronto Int’l Body Image Film & Arts Festival, Curvy Catwalk Fashion Fundraiser, co-founder of FatinTheCity.com a plus-size fashion ‘fatshion’ blog, and the annual Body Confidence Canada Awards.
