Special note: The amazing folks at Pandora’s Project have invited me to participate in a live chat next Wednesday evening. Pandy’s is an organization dedicated to providing information, support, and resources to survivors of rape and sexual abuse and their friends and family, and they do absolutely incredible work. The chat will touch on body image among survivors, and will go live on 2/23/11 at 7:30 p.m. CST. If you’re not a survivor yourself but know someone who is, I hope you’ll consider passing along this info, or even just spreading the word about Pandora’s Project. Thanks, folks.
