CSUN celebrates national Love Your Body Day
JADE and the GWSSA will be handing out “I love my body” pins and literature about eating disorders to better inform students about the impact of media and consumer culture on womens perceptions of beauty as well as accepting submissions to the Love Your Body Day poster contest.
The winner of the Love Your Body Day poster contest will receive a parking pass for Spring 2012.
“To combat these images we need to educate (people) about body image, healthy eating and what the ‘right’ type of body is,” said Karen Medina, GWSSA president.
The day’s festivities will conclude with a film screening of “America the Beautiful,” a documentary about body representation of women in the U.S., at the Women’s Research and Resource Center at 7:00 p.m.
