What is the Body Project at Loyola?

The Body Project is an interactive, two session workshop that is designed to challenge the thin ideal and help improve body satisfaction for women. The workshop is set up as a non-judgmental group conversation, where participants have the opportunity to discuss and criticize the thin ideal, and participate in spoken and written exercises. The Body Project workshops are led by trained female student leaders at Loyola who are passionate about promoting positive body image. The workshops are held in 2 two hour sessions a week apart.
