“If tomorrow, women woke up and decided they really liked their bodies, just think how many industries would go out of business.” ― Dr Gail Dines
It's time to add our next monthly talk to your diary! On Wednesday 27 January at 8pm GMT, the four of us will be discussing body image, a topic that we are incredibly passionate about, and we'd love you to join us.
What's it all about?
At the start of every year, we are bombarded with advertising, images and messaging about 'getting in shape' for the year ahead. This year is no different, but now we are expected to have become super-fit and grown a six pack whilst being in lockdown. As if…
Humans, and women in particular, have been at war with their bodies for centuries. The constantly shifting idea of the 'perfect' body has led us to shrink and tone and feed and starve ourselves until we feel worthy of love and acceptance.
But what if instead of moulding, changing and criticising ourselves for falling short of this made up marker of success, all we needed was a change in perspective?
During this talk we will be having an open and honest conversation about body image and how we can start to see the relationship we have with our bodies from a new perspective. We have a lot to say on this topic so buckle up for a fiery discussion!
We can't wait for you to join us.
