The AnyBody UK team ran a workshop at the Southbank Centre’s Women of the World Festival for International Women’s day. The workshop was titled ‘She Said What!? Women’s Bodies Shaped By Words’ and invited participants to discuss and challenge the damaging ways in which we talk about our own and each others’ bodies.
It was attended by around 100 participants, and gave rise to thoughtful moments of contemplation, identified shared moments of struggle, and raised challenges to us all to do things differently. Ideas for change were tweeted live during the event.
