Love Your Body

The National Organization for Women (NOW) sponsors Love Your Body Day each year to draw attention to the commercial objectification of women’s bodies and the promotion of unhealthy products and practices to achieve an ideal image of beauty. The beauty template that women and girls receive is narrow, unrealistic, and most importantly ingrained into their brains, leaving any woman who does not fit this template feeling inadequate. The Love Your Body campaign challenges the message that a woman’s value is best measured through her willingness and ability to embody current beauty standards. The UD Women's Center provides awareness and activities that promote a positive body image, particularly through the month of October, which is Love Your Body Month. There are also free resources and support available year-round in the Center.
