What We’re Doing Now
Promoting Positive Self-Image
March Meetings Focus on Creating Awareness Through Beautiful Health and Miss Representation
One of the main areas of impact for us is promoting a positive self-image. We work toward that end primarily with our partnership with The University of Alabama’s Beautiful Health program. Beautiful Health was started by then UA senior Jackie Park, who wanted to help area teen and pre-teen girls focus on building self-esteem and inner beauty at a critical time in their lives.
The Beautiful Health program includes a weekly mentoring of middle school girls by college-age women, focusing on overall health and wellness. It educates girls in the four aspects of health - physical, mental, social and spiritual health. Junior League members serve as mentors and help host an annual event.
The Representation Project is a movement that uses film and media content to expose injustices created by gender stereotypes and to shift people’s consciousness towards change. The JLT watched a 90 minute documentary, Miss Representation, exposing alarming statistics about our culture today when it comes to how the media impacts people's perception of women, and how it impacts us.
