Group promotes positive images of women

The Pittsburg State University Women's Studies Club will participate in the National Organization for Women's Love Your Body Day on Wednesday, Oct. 18. The national campaign is an effort to promote positive images and eliminate negative images of women.

As part of the observance, the PSU club will set up a table from 9 a.m. until 1 p.m. at the entrance to Grubbs Hall at which women may make beauty-pageant style sashes with positive personal messages on them. The sashes are free.

The organizers say the sashes are a direct response to unrealistic social images of the perfect woman.
