Labor Day Encore: Fattitude Celebrates Positive Body Images

Aug 31, 2018

This interview was originally broadcast Tuesday, May 22, 2018.

The documentary Fattitude debuts in Boise on May 30; the picture celebrates body positivity and points out the societal inequities and stereotypes faced by overweight people. The webpage shares facts like "fat people are paid $1.25 less an hour than their thin counterparts" and "one in three doctors associate fat bodies with hostility, dishonesty and poor hygiene."

We speak with the director of the film and we're joined in studio by Amy Pence-Brown, body positivity activist and founder of the Boise Rad Fat Collective.
