Jes Baker is a blogger, speaker, author, mental health professional, cat lover, ALL CAPS user and unabashed fat chick. She is on a mission to turn our society's concept of beauty on its oppressive head, as she knows for a fact that every person in this world is worthy of respect regardless of their size, shape, shade, sex, ability, gender or age.
Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls is a manifesto and call to arms for people of all sizes and ages. With her trademark wit, veteran blogger and advocate Jes Baker calls people everywhere to embrace a body-positive worldview, changing perceptions about weight, and making mental health a priority.
Alongside notable guest essayists, Jes shares personal experiences paired with in-depth research in a way that is approachable, digestible, and empowering. Things No One Will Tell Fat Girls is an invitation to reject fat prejudice, fight body-shaming at the hands of the media, and join this life-changing movement with one step: change the world by loving your body.
