(Content Warning: This episode contains in-depth discussions of body image issues and eating disorders.) We're back for Part 2 of episode 204, "Age Before Beauty." We were so excited that our Artifact Expert of the week, Dr. Christine Adams (St. Mary's College of Maryland) answered our artifact-related questions AND watched this episode to provide us rich perspective on the roles that "age" and physical "beauty" have played in women's lives throughout history.
For more support with body image and eating disorders, we recommend the resource nationaleatingdisorders.org, which includes information for people of color, people with disabilities, members of the LGBTQ+ community, and more.
