Your Body Day is Wednesday, October 19
Women and girls spend billions of dollars every year on cosmetics, fashion, magazines and diet aids. These industries can't use negative images to sell their products without our assistance.
Together, we can fight back.
The Let's Talk About It project is encouraging women to speak up and speak out about body image -- on camera. It is a unique video campaign, providing a space for women and girls to talk about struggles and success with body image. Read the press release.
If you're on Twitter, you can follow NationalNOW and use the hashtag #lybd to talk about Love Your Body Day and the things you are doing to celebrate! You can also find NOW on Facebook, where we also have a Love Your Body Cause.
This presentation illustrates and describes how advertisers and the media enforce unrealistic beauty standards, sexual ideals and gender stereotypes that girls and women are expected to follow. What is the impact of these images, and what can YOU do? Find out.
