Jes Baker is a positive, progressive, and magnificently irreverent force to be reckoned with in the realm of self-love advocacy and mental health. Jes is internationally recognized for her writing on her blog, The Militant Baker, the "Attractive and Fat" campaign, and her dedication to shifting social paradigms into a place where all people are offered the opportunity to love themselves just as they are. The "Attractive and Fat" campaign (a response to Abercrombie and Fitch's controversial branding efforts) drew coverage from CNN, the Today Show, and the BBC among many others. Her extensive body advocacy work has continued to garner attention from hundreds of national and international media networks. Jes harnesses the power of vulnerability, honesty and candor through dialogue about living in a world where worth is determined by your dress size, diagnosis, and deference to authority. Jes Baker, when not blogging, spends her time producing the renowned Body Love Conference, speaking at universities, taking pictures in her underwear, writing for several online publications, working with clothing companies to promote more plus size fashion, and trying to convince her cats that they like to wear sweaters and bow ties.
