Lesley Kinzel

Lesley Kinzel

Lesley Kinzel has been engaging with body politics and social justice activism, both as an academic and as an everyday upstart, for over a decade. Lesley's efforts to talk about fattery really loudly with as many people as possible have included writing for Newsweek and Marie Claire; being profiled in a feature article in the Boston Globe; having her blog twittered about by Roger Ebert; serving as a guest for a roundtable discussion on fat and culture for NPR's On Point; and being honored by The Feminist Press as one of "40 Feminists Under 40″ to watch out for, because they're probably causing trouble for SOMEBODY.

Having narrowly escaped her home planet of South Florida at the tender age of 18, she currently resides in the Boston area with her husband and their cats, where she works as an associate editor at xoJane.com.
