From November 12th-18th, 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.
What is Love Your Body Week (LYBW)?
LYBW promotes developing positive body image and self-love with a secondary focus on the impact of social media and society 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.
How is the Women’s Centre involved in Love Your Body Week (LYBW)?
Here at the Women’s Centre, we celebrate the importance of self-love with your body through resources awareness, a series of social media campaigns, and events held throughout the week. Students of all identities are welcome to participate in the many engaging activities we provide.
