Love Your Body programming in the Women’s Center is inspired by the National Organization of Women annual Love Your Body Day Campaigns. At NC State, our goal is to create opportunities that encourage the campus community to challenge how society views bodies of varying shapes, sizes, genders, races, abilities and backgrounds. Through Love Your Body Day Programming, we recognize what systems affect our perception of our own and others bodies and how we can change them.
For this year’s Love Your Body Day, the Women’s Center will host an art-making event in the Women’s Center Lounge. Join us to take selfies, write love letters to our bodies, make art, and shed harmful ideas about what our bodies should look like or do. We’ll have a selfie station for Instagram, buttons, and temporary tattoos, along with other crafts that participants can take with them as a reminder to love their bodies. Come be creative with us on October 19th from 1-3 p.m. in the Women’s Center!
