Happy Love Your Body Day!

The annual Love Your Body Day by NOW is a celebration of female bodies in all their natural forms, an opportunity to raise awareness about harmful media images and a day to fight back.

To the left is my all-time favorite winner of the Love Your Body poster contest. You can check out this and previous year’s winners here — I’m partial to the 2007 Category 2 winner, myself.

You can also send an e-card to the women in your life, telling them about the day and how great their bodies are. And check out the ways to celebrate. Enjoy!

OOh great day! In the spirit, check out the “shape of a mother” blog:

It shows real women’s bodies.

That is a great site. But warning! It’s not always safe for work!

Today is also another reason to check out Kate Harding’s BMI Project slide show.

I don’t really like that poster. My favorite is the Crystal Holiday one from 2004. I also like the category 2 one you mention, and the high school one under that.
