Format: Paperback
After years of looking for feminist perspectives on eating disorders I came across this amazing book. What makes this book particularly unique is that it is edited, and contains the views of many different feminists and feminist therapists. Not only was the theory the most useful I have read, but this book also contains many helpful ideas for how feminists (and feminists working in the mental health field in particular) can best help their clients who are struggling with eating disorder and body image issues. Anyone who works with eating disordered clients cannot pass this book up--it is WELL woth the money!

HASH(0xa06f103c) out of 5 stars An Excellent Resource Aug. 8 2011
By Katie - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
Though a little dated now, overall, this book is an excellent resource for addressing EDs from a feminist perspective. They do a decent job at addressing multicultural factors salient to the develop of an eating disorder. The description of feminist therapy had me nodding along happily. Overall, this is a great book to have in your library.
HASH(0xa06f1060) out of 5 stars They also offer good criticism on early feminist interpretation of these issues Oct. 1 2014

Fascinating collection of essays looking at all aspects of eating disorders, fatness, thinness etc. Essays look at the patriarchal aspects underlying women's eating patterns and body shape. They also offer good criticism on early feminist interpretation of these issues. Well worth the read!
