America the Beautiful 2
Have you seen it? I went to the Hollywood premiere a couple of weeks ago, and Darryl Roberts, the filmmaker, was there, along with several members of the cast, and all were available for a Q & A!
It isn't ground-breaking, but it does bring more, much-needed attention to eating disorders and our national focus on obesity.
And, speaking of fighting stigmas against weight and shape, try this one on for size:
The editor writes:
"I'm seeking personal essay submissions from women who have made strides in overcoming societal stigma around body size/weight and who now love/feel positive about their curvy/chubby/fat bodies. The submission deadline is quickly approaching. . . . I am offering contributors of accepted submissions $50."
Because if you're going to fight this stigma, you may as well earn some cash in the process!
