A Conversation about Feminism and Reality TV
It’s no secret that there is a lack of diversity of bodies in reality tv… especially in the Bachelor. In 20 years The Bachelor has not changed their casting practices and we’re over it. On today’s episode, Rah chats with Jenna and Rach from the newly launched group Roses for Everybody. They’re here to change the game with their Fat Bachelor Inclusion campaign and challenge you to get rid of your anti-fat biases.
