A few weeks ago I was asked by iVillage.ca to make a video in response to Carolyn Pioro, a journalist who has written about becoming a quadriplegic after an accident cut short her circus career. In her video she shares her thoughts on her new body, the representations of body types in the media, and how we can be better body image heroes to the next generation of women. From body size to abilities, do you see yourself reflected in mainstream media? How is that landscape changing? What kind of people do you want to see represented in film, fashion and the online? Those are the questions that me and some other lovely panelists answer after watching Carolyn’s video. You can chime in with your two cents too by visiting the iVillage.ca I Want to Talk About It section HERE.
