Fat Girl tackled issues around body image, sexuality, identity, politics and more. Its approach was direct; it did not tiptoe around its subjects. Sometimes funny, sometimes controversial, Fat Girl gave readers a peek into the lives of large women. Contributors included Charlotte Cooper.
Note: A second zine with the same name has been published fairly recently.
In 2005, a minizine called Fat Girl was published by Nicci Mechler. FG is 1/4 size and is, as of May 09, up to issue 13. It is a zine that deals with body image, HAES, fat positive imagery, and is heavily illustrated.
