This is exceptional writing and I’m giving it to my teens to read. My one question for the author..I have lived in Asia for 20 years. Similar pressure exists around Asian working women. However they do not seem to live on the ‘extremes’ that Americans do. Neither do Europeans. People can have just a glass of wine with dinner and call it a night. What is your perception based on your experience that ‘drives’ women to over consume in the US? I have my own thoughts but I’m interested in yours.
Thanks for your response.
