Fatphobia Workshop - Jan 26 (Free!)

The Women's Centre of Calgary is hosting a free Fatphobia Workshop!
Tuesday January 26
Time: 6:30 to 8:15 pm
Location: Women's Centre of Calgary, 646 1st Avenue NE Calgary
To Register: The workshop is free but you must phone the Women's Centre at 403-264-1155 to register.
Come uncover sizism and fatphobia, and learn more about the body myths we are all taught in a safe, inclusive and peer-oriented space.
Fatphobia and Sizism: The belief that only thin bodies/shape/look are normal, natural, beautiful, sexy and healthy and the propagation of the myth that everyone can and should change their bodies to match this false ideal. An oppression that is often invisible or not talked about.
This is a queer, trans, disability and woman positive workshop. Everyone of all shapes, sizes and women identified people are welcome.
Fat is a descriptive word that should not have so much baggage attached to it. Fat is beautiful, healthy, sexy and natural. Come debunk the myths about fat, and learn how fatphobia is reinforced by the patriarchy.
