Love Your Body: Get Talking!
The first step in moving beyond unrealistic standards of body and beauty is to get talking about the common themes found in media images of women. We must encourage women and men, girls and boys to think critically about the images they see every day instead of passively accepting them.

The Let's Talk About It project is encouraging women to speak up and speak out about body image -- on camera. It is a unique video campaign, providing a space for women and girls to talk about struggles and success with body image. Read the press release.

If you're on Twitter, you can follow NationalNOW and use the hashtag #lybd to talk about Love Your Body Day and the things you are doing to celebrate! You can also find NOW on Facebook, where we also have a Love Your Body Cause.
