  • 1. Embrace Who You Are Because, You Are BE-YOU-TIFUL! Brittney Phillips
  • 2. What Am I Talking About? During the times of the Roman Empire being heavy set was viewed as you came form money. If you were able to be heavy meant you were fortunate enough to eat good. Comparing those days to today, society has taken a dramatic change. We now have models on the runway, magazines and television who are underweight, some even are anorexic. This gives the normal human being an intimidating feeling because they don’t embody all the same characteristics as the women on the TV.
  • 3. Beauty Comes in ALL Shapes & Sizes Pinterest • This is a board on Pinterest which is dedicated to posting inspirational quotes and photos of women of all shapes and sizes and promoting confidence within themselves.
  • 4. Media Effects on Body Image, SelfEsteem & Beauty Ideals – YouTube Channel • This is a compilation of 38 videos. • Each video is either a documentary or a personal video showing the effects of society’s body imaging and expectations on children and women. • The different ways the media alters women’s body’s to be “Perfect”. • The health risks (psychological and physical) of trying to have society’s “ideal body” (anorexia) • mo7DoAkQK_fyoHYLfBvQS
  • 5. Dove Campaign for REAL Beauty & Self-Esteem Fund • Their Vision: “Dove has a vision of a world where beauty is a source of confidence, and not anxiety. Join the conversation to support positive self-esteem.” • The Dove websites offers a place where women and young girls can go to get support and advice on how to live a healthy and happy life in the skin their in.
  • 6. Health… The Good, The Bad, But NO UGLY! •Above is a chart of what ideally your height to weight measurements should be. It shows you what is too low and too high for your height. •There's nothing wrong with being in shape and having a slim body. Nor is there anything wrong with embracing your curvy body. As long as you are at a weight that doesn’t negatively effect your health and makes you genuinely happy. •No matter your size, eating healthy and exercise is essential to a long healthy life.
  • 7. The Comedian: Monique • “I tweet every morning. Because I want women to see – especially us big women – that you don’t have to let them cut you and suck it out. You don’t have to let them staple you up. You don’t have to let them give you a pill. You don’t have to let them put a band around your organs.” • Monique went on to say in the interview she would always be a big girl, but she wanted to be a healthy big girl so she can live for her children.
  • 8. Why is this a Digital Justice Issue? (For Me) • Technology was created to make the lives of human beings easier and to have access to anything they needed whenever they needed it. • We are living in a time where the paper and pen is becoming archaic. You can find people ranging in ages from 3-90 on the computer or mobile devices. No matter if its just texting, calling, emailing or surfing the web. This is what it is now. • Furthermore, when you have something to say and you want to get it out to numerous amounts of people all at once there’s no better place then the world wide web. • This issue that is becoming a growing problem around the world needs as much exposure as it possibly could get. We need men and women to realize their inner and outer beauty and promote positivity and support into the world. We aren’t all meant to look alike so everyone should feel good in the skin they are in.
