Happy Valentine's Day!

Whether single or in a relationship, Valentine's Day and every day is the right day to love yourself.

heart Love Your Body Quiz

Take Action NOW! Join the fight against negative self-image promoted by mainstream media. Take our Valentine's Day Love Your Body quiz and spread the love by forwarding it on to other women for Valentine's Day, and always - LOVE YOUR BODY! Don't forget to add the quiz to your own web pages!

Spreading the love does not stop there. Developing a healthier body image for women and girls takes both creative proactive and counter actions as well as consumer education. Here are some additional ways to take back control of what makes us feel healthy and comfortable with our bodies based on our own terms - not the unrealistic images promoted by advertisers and the mass media.

heartSend an E-Card for Valentine's Day or any day! Send a Valentine to show your friends and family how much you love them, or choose a card that passes along our Love Your Body quiz and reminds them to love their bodies too. Pick one or more!

heartWatch the Love Your Body Slideshow! This presentation by NOW Foundation's Love Your Body Campaign illustrates and describes how advertisers and the media enforce unrealistic beauty standards, sexual ideals and gender stereotypes that girls and women are expected to follow. Learn the real impact of these images on the health and well-being of women and girls and what you can do about it.
