The (Other) F Word: A Celebration of the Fat and Fierce, by Angie Manfredi


A collection of poems, essays, advice, and illustrations by various writers, models, poets, illustrators, and activists who all identify as fat; this was such an eye-opening and inspirational read. As someone who personally has never identified as fat, hearing the stories of others has given me a greater understanding and empathy of a lot of the struggles and systemic discrimination fat people face in today's world, and the uphill battle many of them have climbed to change things. I loved how so many diverse groups were represented in this anthology, as well as the emphasis on intersectionality!
