The Body Project

Come join the Body Project — a group of students working together to decrease adherence to the appearance ideal and increase body acceptance!

THE BODY PROJECT is a fun and interactive program designed to empower women to challenge unrealistic cultural messages about the appearance ideal and develop healthy body acceptance. Participants will have the opportunity to critique the appearance ideal through verbal, written, and behavioral exercises. Through these exercises, women learn the costs of pursuing appearance ideals, ways to combat them, and the basics of body activism. Participants will leave this training with skills to promote body acceptance of diverse body shapes and sizes, counter negative appearance talk in their daily lives, and embrace all of the wonderful non-appearance-related aspects of themselves and others.

Participation requires a commitment to attend two, two-hour sessions led by peer leaders in a comfortable environment. Click HERE to sign up for future sessions of The Body Project.
