Fat Is a Feminist Issue - Susie Orbach

Condition: Very Good - in Very Good DJ. Top edges of text block spotted.

From the cover: “Fat is not about self control or will power,’’ says the author, a feminist psychotherapist who has successfully treated hundreds of women for compulsive eating and obesity. Fat is about protection, sexuality, mothering and assertion. It is a social disease, a response to the inequality of the sexes. In this highly original and sensible book Orbach shows us why women become compulsive eaters; why women often get fat; why women regain weight after dieting; and just how women can get off the diet/binge merrygo-round.”
