In American society, thin can equal beauty. In no other demographic is the pressure to be skinny felt more than in women in their late teens and early 20s. University of Kentucky students will lead a workshop for fellow students to discuss how they are more than just a number on a scale or a pretty face.

The Body Project workshop will be from 3:30 p.m. to 5:30 p.m. Oct. 27 and Nov. 3 in room 209 of UK’s Funkhouser Building on campus.
