Body image message for Women’s Health Week
EMBRACE film showing at Mildura – Wednesday, 7 September
To celebrate Women’s Health Week, Dareton Primary Health, together with Kangatraining Mildura and Live Fit, is bringing the body image documentary EMBRACE to Mildura.
The documentary is the work of Body Image Movement’s Tarryn Brumfitt who is on a quest to redefine and rewrite the ideals of beauty in an effort to encourage women to fully embrace and love their bodies.
The Body Image Movement says no to excessive photoshopping of bodies in the media, sexualisation of young women and girls, women being objectified and the tendency of the advertising industry to prey on women’s insecurities, said Anita Erlandsen, Clinical Nurse Specialist Women’s Health, Far West LHD.
“Instead the movement encourages embracing body diversity, prioritising health over beauty, and encouraging women to be positive about their bodies.
“This is a very important message, particularly for young women who are under a lot of pressure to look a certain way,” said Ms Erlandsen.
The EMBRACE documentary will be shown at the Cinema Deakin on Wednesday, 7 September at 7.30pm. Tickets are $20 and available via www.Fan-Force.com/screening .
Tickets are limited so please purchase yours soon.
