Shadow on a Tightrope’s 30th Anniversary Blog Carnival Celebration, November 8, 2013

The 30th Anniversary Blog Carnival event celebrating Shadow on a Tightrope: Writings by Women on Fat Oppression was a thought-provoking success! Fat activists came together and shared their thoughts about and experiences with Shadow on a Tightrope.

The carnival started here, where live links to each participating blogger’s page was posted. Read snippets of those posts and find links to whole articles here.

Celebrate the book’s legacy by ordering your own copy of this pioneering work. See where it all began, and help fulfill the editors’ hope that the book will enable women to “…recognize the reality of fat oppression in their own and other women’s lives, and find the courage to fight back.”
