Every day, in so many ways, the beauty industry (and the media in general) tell women and girls that being admired, envied and desired based on their looks is a primary function of true womanhood. The beauty template women are expected to follow is extremely narrow, unrealistic and frequently hazardous to their health. 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 National Organization for Women Foundation hosts an annual poster contest to celebrate the Love Your Body Campaign.
A $200 prize will be awarded to one undergraduate or graduate student whose images that demonstrate beauty is not limited by body size, body type, ethnicity, age or physical appearance.
The deadline for this contest is December 2. To enter, or for additional information, please click here: http://bit.ly/17Spt4x
