You may have seen a new hashtag floating around social media this week: #bodyconfidenceweek. Created by British plus-size model and body positive activist Sarah Martindale, it was spawned on the heels of another meme that proudly and stupidly tried to shame fat people.

Most of those tweets were too inane to really care about, but the general gist was “Why are women so fat? It’s unattractive to me and therefore should be eradicated.” Typical, misogynist, fatphobic talk.

Martindale took the meme and spun it into #bodyconfidenceweek, giving women the chance to share why they’re comfortable with their bodies, big or small or somewhere in between.
