The fat studies reader by Esther D Rothblum( Book )

7 editions published in 2009 in English and Undetermined and held by 1,020 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

We have all seen the segments on television news shows: A fat person walking on the sidewalk, her face out of frame so she can't be identified, as some disconcerting findings about the "obesity epidemic" stalking the nation are read by a disembodied voice. And we have seen the movies, their obvious lack of large leading actors silently speaking volumes. From the government, health industry, diet industry, news media, and popular culture we hear that we should all be focused on our weight. But is this national obsession with weight and thinness good for us? Or is it just another form of prejudice, one with especially dire consequences for many already disenfranchised groups? For decades a growing group of scholars has been examining the role of body weight in society, critiquing the underlying assumptions, prejudices, and effects of how people perceive and relate to fatness. This burgeoning movement, known as fat studies, includes scholars from every field, as well as activists, artists, and intellectuals. This book brings together fifty-three diverse voices to explore a wide range of topics related to body weight. From the historical construction of fatness to public health policy, from job discrimination to social class disparities, from chick lit to airline seats, this collection covers it all. Edited by two leaders in the field, it is a resource that provides a historical overview of fat studies, an in depth examination of the movement's fundamental concerns, and an up-to-date look at its innovative research

Faces of women and aging( Book )

9 editions published between 1993 and 2014 in English and held by 280 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discover the diverse ways aging women attempt to deal with the universal challenges of loss, sickness, and death along with the problems of being old women in a society that values women mainly as sexual partners or producers of children. Old women are often seen as poor, powerless, and pitiful in our sexist and youth-oriented society. The truth is that women age much more successfully than do men and they are increasingly in the majority as our population ages. These truths and others are presented in Faces of Women and Aging--a collection written by women, a number of whom are themselves old
Preventing heterosexism and homophobia by Esther D Rothblum( Book )

7 editions published in 1996 in English and held by 277 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Even in today's society, gay men, lesbians, and bisexuals experience multiple pressures and constraints related to their chosen lifestyles, in addition to the stresses of everyday life. This dual tension can result in psychopathology among gay men, lesbians, and bisexuals. Preventing Heterosexism and Homophobia examines the gay and lesbian experience in light of this tension and points toward a future free of heterosexism. The stress of "coming out," the uncertainty of parenting their children, and the difficulties facing ethnic minority lesbians and bisexuals cannot be adequately addressed without confronting the heterosexual bias in society. The contributors to this informative volume propose methods geared to the elimination of the heterosexual bias in various settings - health care, therapy, communities, corporate America, and education. Ultimately, this book examines both the risks and joys of being gay, lesbian, and bisexual, and how to prevent heterosexism and its effects on the lives of all people, including those of heterosexuals
