Perfect the Way They Are: 19 Eastern Townships women showcase body diversity in Bury exhibition

By Emilie Hackett, Special to the Record – To celebrate International Women’s Day 2019, the La Passerelle Women’s Centre in the Haut-Saint-François will launch its “Perfect the Way They Are” photo project at the Armoury Community Centre in Bury this Friday, March 8, from 5 p.m. to 8 p.m. The goal of the project is to engage participants in a critical thinking process about the societal pressures that weigh on women in relation to their physical appearance. Inspired by projects conducted by other women centres, La Passerelle chose to start their own. “Not a day goes by where we don’t hear women criticizing their bodies in relation to society’s standards,” explained Andrée Larrivée, the Women Centre’s coordinator. See full story in the Wednesday, March 6 edition of The Record.
