The 1975 anti-diet book with the killer title - Fat Is A Feminist Issue - became and still is a bible for millions of women. Its author, Susie Orbach, has since continued to write about women's relationships to their bodies and to food, on public and private emotions, on friendships and love, on therapy. She has consulted for The World Bank and Britain's NHS and brings the insights of the psychotherapists' consulting room to the wider public through writing and broadcasting. She is involved with the worldwide campaign endangeredbodies.org which tackles body hatred. Orbach speaks with Carole Beu.
