Love Your Body Week

The National Organization for Women (NOW) is celebrating Love Your Body Week the week of October 10th, 2021. The Love Your Body campaign was created to raise awareness about the unrealistic and toxic beauty standards that society has created for women. The campaign challenges the notion that a woman’s worth is dependent upon the way that she looks and her ability to conform to beauty standards. These nonfiction titles will help you embrace the body that you have and reiterate the importance of loving your body.
