Peer Body Project

Defining our own beauty

Through collaboration across gender studies, health, human performance and athletics, psychology, sociology, and student health, wellness and counseling center, Linfield Peer Body Project exists to promote a community of body activism that gives us the power to define beauty for ourselves.

We join 60 other college and universities across the country in implementing the Body Project, an evidence-based, peer-led prevention program. This unique program consists of four weekly discussion groups designed to help young women resist cultural pressures to conform to the ideals of female beauty.
