Did you know 80 percent of women are dissatisfied with their appearance and 49 percent of girls ages 3 to 6 worry about being fat?
Yesterday, NOW Foundation honored the true beauty within all women with our 13th annual Love Your Body Day. As this campaign continues year-round, we need your help to eliminate dangerously unrealistic standards of beauty. Can you help us grow our campaign with a tax-deductible gift?
Many NOW chapters are holding events this month to get the message out that bodies are beautiful, just the way they are. Here are just a few examples:
- Hollywood NOW is joining forces with America's Next Top Model winner Whitney Thompson to celebrate beauty that comes in every size.
- The University of Illinois Urbana-Champaign chapter continues to take photographs of women enjoying their favorite foods.
- And in the nation's capital, the land of power suits, the DC NOW chapter held a sweat pants get-together.
In addition, NOW Foundation recently gave a presentation to the U.N. Human Rights Council in Geneva, Switzerland, on the impact of images of women and girls in the media on human rights.
Your tax-deductible gift goes a long way to empowering women and girls -- in this generation and the future.
P.S. NOW Foundation has been on the frontlines of self-acceptance for 13 years and we'd love you to stand with us as we prepare for National Eating Disorders Awareness Week in February. Please give now.
