Request for resources: International weight stigma legislation

Posting on behalf of Stephanie von Leibenstein of the German Society Against Weight Discrimination. She is seeking literature on the legal aspects of weight discrimination. She is particularly interested in any literature in the French language and/or information pertaining to the situation in countries outside Germany and the US, including the UK, Russia, and countries in South America and Africa. She is also interested in speaking to activitists advocating legal protection for fat people, especially those outside the US, Canada, Iceland, Germany, and New Zealand.

Updated: 1. Please contact Stephanie directly at s-v-liebenstein@gmx.de. 2. She is particularly interested in efforts to change the law in favour of fat rights, rather than evidence of how the legal system is failing fat people.
