It is no secret that society has constructed a high level of pressure surrounding the appearance of women’s bodies. In light of such pressures we have chosen to create a zine focused on issues regarding body image and the different ways in which society impacts women's bodies. Our goal is to raise awareness of how society's standards affect women and also empower those who are a part of the project. On the following pages you will find four sections highlighting a few main categories of which we have found there to be the significant presence of stigma and stereotypes: athletes, teenagers, mothers, and models. We hope that this content will challenge your thoughts on how society labels women and encourage you to examine how they instead would label themselves.
