International comparisons of weight stigma: addressing a void in the ﬁeld
Despite substantial evidence documenting weight stigma toward people with higher body weight, international comparative studies are lacking in this ﬁeld. The few studies that have compared weight stigma across different countries focus on explicit weight-biased attitudes rather than people’s experiences of weight stigma. The present study conducted a multinational systematic comparison of weight stigma in six countries to assess experiences and interpersonal sources of weight stigma.
