Every Friday in class, a student presents a “current event” in the world of body image. This past Friday, one of my students told the class about Operation Beautiful, a project whose mission is to end fat talk one anonymous post it a time. The idea is that people everywhere ambush public places with Post-It Notes that remind the reader that he/ she is beautiful already. People from around the world can participate by posting a note, taking a picture, and emailing it in. One group of girls wrote in that they were covering their high school with notes– a nice positive message at a time and place when girls don’t always feel beautiful. Lest you think that this project is just for the young, college students and adults are participating, too (imagine how great it would be to find a post-it declaring your beauty at the ATM).
