Love Your Body Day
Time: 10:00 AM - 5:00 PM
Location: Multicultural Center
Description: Love Your Body Day is a national campaign sponsored by the National Organization for Women (NOW) Foundation. “Every day, in so many ways, the beauty industry (and the media in general) tell women and girls that being admired, envied and desired based on their looks is a primary function of true womanhood. The beauty template women are expected to follow is extremely narrow, unrealistic and frequently hazardous to their health. The Love Your Body campaign challenges the message that a woman’s value is best measure through her willingness and ability to embody current beauty standards.”

Help acknowledge Love Your Body Day at WIU by visiting the Multicultural Center on October 18, 2017 from 10:00am – 5:00pm. “Body Myth” collages, created by students in Professor Beate Wilson’s Sociology 100 classes, will be displayed throughout the first floor of the MCC.
