Body Image, Food Anxieties and Beyonce


After Women’s Hour in-depth podcast on body image, we discuss how our mothers influenced our own, and the unusual eating habits or food anxieties we’ve developed in a body conscious society. This was also the week that Lena Dunham’s nudity was again thrown into the spotlight, with critics labelling it confusing as her body apparently can’t be stereotypically titillating. Finally we discuss Beyonce as a feminist, and if her three-paragraph ‘essay’ on gender inequality really could have an impact.
