We need to stop hating our bodies: Screening of documentary 'EMBRACE'

  • AMC 600 North Michigan 9 600 North Michigan Avenue Chicago, IL, 60611 United States (map)


We are at war with our bodies. It is time to declare peace.

A staggering 91% of women dislike their bodies. We are pressured by a narrowly constructed concept of beauty that is seen as a prerequisite to happiness, success and self-worth. As we chase the unattainable, our mental wellbeing, relationships, and physical and sexual health are sacrificed.

To raise awareness and create a positive dialogue around this issue, we are hosting a screening of EMBRACE, a documentary that addresses the global epidemic of body shaming and body hating. 

In order for the film to be shown in a major movie theater in Chicago, 100 people must buy tickets.

Please reserve your tickets at You will only be charged for the ticket if the minimum requirement of participants is met for the screening.

We hope you will attend!
