Date: Tuesday, February 25th
Time: 12:00 PM – 1:00 PM
Place: 41 Wyllys Room 113

Feel Good, Look Good!

From Willa Beckman ’15:

Come view fourteen international short films that address issues with body image and the media. Runtime is approximately 80 minutes. Then stay after the films for an open discussion with Ruth Striegel. Dinner will be provided!

This event is hosted by the PHAs through Feel Good, Look Good. Our aim is to raise awareness about society and the media’s influence on beauty ideals and its promotion of unrealistic and unhealthy body image. We hope to redefine beauty as more than physical appearance and promote lasting self-esteem and confidence.

  • Date: Wednesday, March 7th (Tomorrow)
  • Time: 7:30PM-10:00PM
  • Place: Shanklin 107

Body Image Campaign

What do you love about your body? What does your body do for you?


By now you might have seen various posters around campus relating to the issues of bodies and body positivity. FemNet (The Feminist Network) would like you to think about your body and your relationship to it. These posters are meant to raise awareness of common (and uncommon) body issues and explore your understanding of what is lovable about your body and you.

Feel inspired by the posters? Have something to say? Send responses to the following questions to wesbody(at)gmail(dot)com.

What do you love about your body?whitman3

What about your body isn’t normally appreciated by yourself or others?

What does your body do for you?

What can you do for your body?

What does your body do for others?

What does your body mean to you?

What makes your body feel good?

How do you feel in your body?

We would love for everyone to respond to the following questions, or ask questions of your own… You can submit short stories, essays, poems, a few simple thoughts, quotes, song lyrics, artwork, or whatever you feel like. We will be flyering responses all over campus in a few weeks. Please put (CONFIDENTIAL) in the subject line, if you would prefer for your response not to be shared.
