From November 8th-12th, The Women’s Centre presents its annual Love Your Body Week! In a time where social media often dictates how we should or shouldn’t look, it’s important to take time and question where these standards come from, how we can overcome these harmful expectations, and love ourselves for who we are.
LYBW promotes developing positive body image and self-love with a secondary focus on the impact of social media and the pandemic on body image. Many schools across the world come together to celebrate and raise awareness about the importance of body image on physical and mental wellbeing.
