Episode 19: Melissa Fabello

Back from my hiatus! Today I talked to Melissa Fabello.

Melissa is a body acceptance activist, sexuality scholar, and patriarchy smasher living in Philadelphia. Currently, Melissa works as a Managing Editor of Everyday Feminism, the largest independent feminist media website in the world, and is a doctoral candidate in Widener University’s Human Sexuality Studies program, where her research focuses on how women with anorexia nervosa experience skin hunger. Her body acceptance work focuses on making peace in eating disorder recovery, striving toward eliminating size stigma, and bringing a more radical lens to the mainstream body positivity conversation.
