Love Your Body Week

The Love Your Body campaign was initiated by the National Organization for Women Foundation in 1997 with the intent to help raise awareness about women’s health, self-esteem and body image. The events of Loyola's Love Your Body Week, which had it's debut in Fall 2009, range from discussions with experts about societal forces and everyday pressures that can affect one’s self-esteem and health, to exploration of our social, political, and emotional connections to food, and ways to heal the body by feeding the spirit.  The Women's Resource Center collaborates with faculty and staff across campus to host this event. This year our "Love Your Body" week programming will take place during Women's History Month and will focus on global women's health issues. The week will run from March 4-8, culminating in the March 8 International Women's Day.
