‘The Heavy Reveal: Embodying Fat Liberation’ Bodyshop with Mel Gruver

Wednesday, Sept. 27 | 3-4 p.m. | Women’s Center

Visit the Women’s Center (Bridges 154) for an interactive workshop with our guest, fat activist and feminist community organizer Mel Gruver, who will join us from Purdue University. This event is part of the Women’s Center’s “Love Your Body” Week, Sept. 25-29. 

Gruver writes: “The world tells womxn that we should be small and that we shouldn’t take up space. This interactive bodyshop will allow us to reflect on our experiences and relationships with our bodies, explore how fat-phobic and fat-positive concepts show up in our relationships to one another, and discover strategies for seeking liberation in ourselves and in society at large. We will take all the space we need to work together to accept our whole selves and to claim ourselves as whole.”

Co-sponsored by the Women’s Center and Recreation & Wellness. Open to folks of any body shape, size, and gender identity.
