RCCE Update

Strong > Skinny

 

I stumbled across this blog post on future RCCE Ruth William’s Facebook. Although it’s not a perfect article, it does present some interesting points about how emphasis should be put on encouraging women to become strong, rather than skinny. It is not saying that skinny (or any body type for that matter) is bad, but rather how we should be motivating women to become strong: whether that is “running for student council, pursing a passion, studying, volunteering, playing sports, working, furthering woman’s rights…” It shows a spotlight on the unhealthy obsession with weight loss in the media, in culture, and even in politics. It’s about having girls focus their time, energy, and emotions on healthy and positive ways of life. Think about all the things we could accomplish.
