A Liberal Point of View to Life

Love Your Body

I am sure title was bit startling. But it is a unique way to undo the societal pressures of maintaining a advertisement and beauty-pageant inspired insecurities about your own body. Read it from the this page of National Organization for Women (NOW) Foundation:

Do you love what you see when you look in the mirror?

Hollywood and the fashion, cosmetics and diet industries work hard to make each of us believe that our bodies are unacceptable and need constant improvement. Print ads and television commercials reduce us to body parts β€” lips, legs, breasts β€” airbrushed and touched up to meet impossible standards. TV shows tell women and teenage girls that cosmetic surgery is good for self-esteem. Is it any wonder that 80% of U.S. women are dissatisfied with their appearance?

National Organization for Women Foundation has launched this unique 2009 love your body poster contest where you will create posters “that demonstrate beauty is not limited by body size, body type, ethnicity, age or physical appearance.” Great! Isn’t it? So when are you sending your entries there? Deadline is December 1, 2008.

October 5 is officially Love your Body Day 2008. πŸ™‚
