What is the Body Image Movement?

Founded by Taryn Brumfitt, the Body Image Movement is working to end the global body-hating epidemic and inspiring us to change the way we feel about ourselves and value our bodies.

Embrace everyBODY. Create global change.

Our mission

  • Inspire women to change the way we feel about ourselves and value our bodies.
  • Redefine and rewrite the ideals of health.
  • Combat toxic media messaging in our society.
  • Celebrate body diversity in shape, size, ethnicity and ability.
  • Empower diversity of choice – everyone has the right to a positive body image and express themselves how they choose to.
  • Educate our global community and provide tools to combat negative body image.

We say no to…

  • Society and advertisers preying on women’s insecurities
  • Excessive Photoshopping of body images in the media
  • Being programmed into accepting unrealistic body images
  • The notion that weight determines your health
  • Women being treated as sexual objects and the objectification of women

And we say yes to…

  • Body diversity and revelling in the beauty of the human form
  • Celebrating the journey our bodies have been on
  • Growing old, and acknowledging the privilege to do so
  • Focusing on things that are important, rather than comparing ourselves to others
  • Being healthy at every weight
