Women Unlimited: Dismantling the messages that erode our intrinsic value

The Utah Women’s Giving Circle invites you to join us for a special panel that will peel back the layers on the sometimes surprising messages delivered to girls from birth through adulthood and how you can empower yourself, your daughters, and the women in our community to challenge these limiting perspectives.

Panelists:

Lindsay and her sister Lexie Kite are identical twin sisters with PhDs in the study of media and body image from the University of Utah. Together, they have presented a popular and empowering visual presentation on body image rooted in their master’s thesis and complementary doctoral dissertations to tens of thousands of people since 2009. They co-founded Beauty Redefined, a non-profit organization, to help people recognize and resist harmful messages about female bodies through online education, social media activism and speaking events. We appreciate Lindsay joining us to represent their important work!
