What role does mental health play in the health industry?

As a response to diet culture, in 2019 Fanny Beckman created the photo series "Women of My Generation". By portraying women who felt unrepresentated in mainstream media, wearing only underwear, she challenges the modern beauty standards. But, what started as a photo series has uncovered conversations which are just as important.

Every week, Fanny invites a special guest to share their story. This podcast covers everything from fashion to mental health issues, activism to family relationships - and most of all: body image.

EPISODE 7: ACE

Trigger Warning: Descriptive language surrounding eating disorders and sexual assault.

Ace grew up with parents struggling with disordered eating, and consequently developed a negative body image herself. At the age of 10 she was forced to fast, which has given her health issues later in life.

Hear her talk about older generations projecting eating disorders onto their children, and what we can do to prevent this from happening to younger generations.
