*** Sixth Week Welfare Notices ***
2. EMBRACE movie night: Thursday, 8pm in the MCR
Activist and motivational speaker Taryn Brumfitt is founder of the Body Image Movement which seeks to promote body positivity amongst women and girls. On Thursday we will be screening her documentary film, EMBRACE*, which follows Taryn’s crusade as she explores the global issue of body loathing, inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and think about our bodies. The event will take place in the MCR at 8pm. Everyone is welcome, this isn't just for women. You can watch the EMBRACE trailer here. You can watch Taryn speak here.
* The film includes pretty frank discussions about eating disorders, which could be triggering for some people. Please keep this in mind when deciding whether or not to attend.
