Amy Farrell on The Colbert Report
So, Amy Farrell recently appeared on the Colbert Report. Who is Amy Farrell? She's a professor of American studies and Women's & Gender Studies at Dickinson College. From her bio:
Her research includes 20th century U.S. culture, U.S. women's history, body politics, and the history of fat stigma. She has. published a book on the history of Ms. magazine during the second wave of feminism, Yours in Sisterhood: Ms. Magazine and the Promise of Popular Feminism.
Oh, and the video doesn't work outside the US (sorry; I can't watch it either), but the fat studies intro is still well worth a read.
