Amazing Women of Color

Continuing the theme of awesome today, a photographer has announced a new photoseries highlighting not just black women, but fat black women. This is so great because this is such an often neglected intersection of oppression. Body positivity too often focuses on fat white women and things focusing on black women tend to focus on the thin ones. And there's a whole specific stereotype around fat black women that needs to be addressed.

The photographer is Helen Moz√£o and the photoseries is "gorda flor" or "fat flower." It already looks soooooo amazing go look at it!
