The Little Book of Big Babes
Edited by Rachelle Abellar, Foreword by Jill Andrew
Representation is a powerful thing. It can help shape who we are, who we aspire to be, and how we view the world around us. It can also give us a stronger sense of self and affirmation of identity. Though fat bodies are finally starting to find their way into mainstream media, we must continue to strive for more diversity and positive representation. Over 150 fatties from around the world contributed to "The Little Book of Big Babes" in an effort to provide a more diverse picture of fatness and fatshion. It is our hope that this book will inspire others, break down fat stereotypes, and change negative attitudes toward fat people.
