MP for Hornsey and Wood Green
I gave one interview only – to the Sunday Times – as a prelude to the work we will be doing starting in the Autumn on Body Confidence (see earlier posts).
In that interview – because I was asked what I thought of Christina Hendricks (the MadMen star) and said I thought she was absolutely fabulous – as was Marilyn Monroe - echoes of that interview have been bouncing around the media ever since. Not surprisingly – I was not advocating that women should aspire to replicate Ms Hendricks’ figure – simply saying that it was nice to see an alternative to ultra thin models.
Susie Orbach, author of Fat is a Feminist Issue and more recently Bodies, has this to say on the subject.
