International Support for Policies to Address Weight-Based Bullying & Discrimination

New multinational research suggests there is considerable public support to address weight discrimination across different countries. According to a new study by researchers at the UConn Rudd Center for Food Policy and Health, support is especially strong for improving anti-bullying policies in schools to better protect youth from being bullied about their weight, and for passing laws that would make it illegal for employers to discriminate against employees because of their weight.
