Students promoting self-love one organization at a time.

University of Wyoming students have joined together to create an organization called Real Women, Real Bodies (RWRB) in efforts to spread positivity throughout campus.

Concerned about the representation of women in the media, Sydney Stein began the organization about five years ago. Since its inception, RWRB holds campaigns and events on campus focusing on helping others to love their bodies.

Julian Dickie, president of RWRB, explained how the first photo campaign “portrayed nude female volunteer students on campus, just to accurately represent female bodies.”

Members of RWRB also organized a concert and panel discussion focused on the representation of LGBTQI+ and female bodies in music. A band even came to discuss their experience with music and representation. Later, the band performed to close out the event.

RWRB has been able to express their message at other places besides the University of Wyoming. Members visited a local junior high school to talk about their goals of the body positivity organization, as well.

On May 3, RWRB held their photo campaign for this semester, which focused on self-expression in art and music, particularly in dance. Students posed in their favorite pose and the photo would have a song lyric caption that represented who the students thought they were.

RWRB looks forward to continuing to help others find a support system and a love for themselves, inside and out.
