Join us for a lecture and discussion with Michelle Lelwica, former Dir. of Women's Studies Program, Associate Professor in the Religion Department at Concordia College, and author of "The Religion of Thinness:Satisfying the Spiritual Hunger Behind Women's Obsession with Food and Weight"
In a society that worships thinness, it’s little wonder that so many women devote an enormous amount of time, energy, and expense in the pursuit of a slender body. This pursuit has come to function like a religion, with it’s own set of beliefs, myths, rituals, images, and moral codes that encourage followers to seek “salvation” through weight loss.
