Letters, Poems and Cyber Discussion  

A Waist is a Terrible Thing to Mind presents 82 stories from a circle of women that ranges from a 13-year old girl to a 70-year old woman. Additionally, we posted an invitation on one of Ms. Magazine’s bulletin boards for women to engage in an on-line dialogue on the subject of body image and beauty. The cyber conversations that ensued are compelling and intimate illustrations of women’s struggles, strengths and support of one another.

The following are 6 of the stories included in the book.

The Sabbath Meal
I Am Learning
The Ice Cream Cone
The Girdle, a Woman’s Best Friend
My Own True Voice
