Our age, shape, ability, race, gender identity or any other factor should have no bearing on our access to a positive body image. 

Historically, oppressive societal structures have played a significant role in depicting what our bodies should look like. This can be an incredibly damaging narrative on our self-worth.

The body positive movement began due to a need to protect us from this narrative and highlight that fundamentally, we all have a right to self-love. 

Bringing this movement to our campus is vital to ensuring we are proactively supportive and celebratory of ourselves and each other.

Linda talks about her experience with bulimia and her realisation that for a long time, she was forcing her body to be a way that it was not meant to be.

Decentralising Body Positivity

One thing that stands out about discussions of body positivity is that still within such a discussion, there are missing bodies. To put it another way, there are bodies who exist at the centre of this celebration, and those who are made to exist at the margins.
