While fat women have made great strides to be recognized in fashion and media, fat acceptance is still considered radical. That's exactly what artist and illustrator Allison Tunis is aiming to undo with "Body Love," a fat activism coloring book.
"Too often, fat is considered to be synonymous with lazy, ugly, and inactive," she told Revelist. "The personalities featured in my book combat these stereotypes of fatness — they are athletes, models, successful designers, public speakers, and so on. They have many many talents and attributes, which in no way are defined or diminished by their body size."
