What would you say to your body if you could? What would you say to the part of YOU the world sees? Here’s an excuse to get it out.
Last year, The Identity of She made a pledge to change society’s distorted views on body image. We gathered women from all around the globe to say the words “I love my body as it is.” We created a movement. This year we’re taking it a step further and we need your help!
For The Identity of She, body positivity doesn’t stop at just the physical body. We want to include every aspect of our bodies and get down to the nitty gritty when we discuss true body love; physically, mentally, emotionally and spiritually. So, we’ve created The Dear Body Project.
The Dear Body Project Creative Media Challenge is a call-to-action that we want you to take part in. What does body love mean to you? How has your body image affected you? What is something you’ve always wanted to say to your body? What has your body taught you and how has body positivity changed you? What do you want to tell the world about body image?
Your challenge is to answer one of our questions and share your body story in a creative form. We want to see, hear, and read about your good and bad experiences with your body. It’s time to get real, ladies and gents.
