This year’s NEDAW did not let me down, friends. The weather did, a little bit. We got snowed out of all of our events since our university has basically been shut down since Wednesday. Considering that this was taken during NEDAW last year, it was a bit of a surprise:
But the Internet certainly did not let me down! There were so many amazing blog posts that I have seven links for you today. Enjoy!

"Marketers helped get us into this mess, but fortunately, they have the power to help get us out. Dove, Always, and Aerie have demonstrated leadership in promoting positive body image in their marketing campaigns and have reaped substantial returns from their efforts."

Until next year, NEDAW. <3
