Love Your Body Day is a national event inviting citizens to speak out against industries (cosmetics, fashion, diet and food) that use negative images and ads that lead women to believe their bodies are unacceptable and in need of constant improvement. The main aim of the day is to protest beauty standards that are unrealistic and unhealthy for men and women, combat industries that profit from women's dissatisfaction with their bodies, and break down stereotypes that discriminate against people based on their size and appearance. It is sponsored by the National Organization for Women (NOW) Foundation.
