The Body Neutrality – A new positive image movement
The movement of Body Positivity has saturated our social media and conversations. With the rise of plus-size models such as Ashley Graham and over 1 million flower body positive Instagram accounts @bodyposipanda, the body positive movement has delivered mass advantages to women and men alike.
However, there are downsides to this movement, regarding its commercialization and the inherent anxiety that stems from the constant conversation.
Instead, another body image movement is being considered/on the rise, which is body neutrality. This movement is about acknowledging what your body does, not about how you look – good or bad.
We had Rebecca Xiberras on the show from Wink Models Australia to discuss the comparisons between the two movements.
