We Woke Up Like This

October 14, 2015

The SMC Body Positive collaborated withthe BSU Sistahs to produce "We Woke Up Like This," a discussion group to discuss body positivity in relation to media representation of women, particularly minority women.  The goals of the discussion were to understand why agency is important, understand how the media portrays women of color, and analyze the differences between body positivity for white women vs. women of color.
