Over the past few decades, GI Joe bulked up and the Sports Illustrated swimsuit model began to look more and more like Barbie. Is this realistic? The Body Image Acceptance Committee presents some thought-provoking products and images of women and men throughout the 20th century – images we see every day, and images that children see.
On Tuesday, March 4, 2008, the Annual Celebration of Natural Body Types will take place in the Memorial Union from 10 am to 6 pm.
For more information about body image concerns, the Counseling Center provides a number of resources at their web site: http://www.uri.edu/coun/ed_eatingandbimage.html.
