Seeing You

The Seeing You series explores the pressures women face related to unrealistic body image standards.


Daughters. Sisters. Mothers. Women and girls are consistently bombarded with messages of what is "perfect" and how they don't match up. This culture influences our perceptions of ourselves, which can leave many with a negative body image.

In the Dove Global Beauty and Confidence Report, only 24% of women in America said they felt body confident.

WZZM 13 has partnered with WCSG and their Seeing You event to begin an important conversation about these issues with the community. We want to explore the topic and offer help to parents, friends, and anyone dealing with body image issues or knows someone who is.

We hope you'll join us in the conversation this week, culminating in the WCSG event Seeing You on Feb. 22 at the Pinnacle Center in Hudsonville where an expert panel will continue the conversation with attendees.
