Ad courtesy of Nike
I was SO excited to rediscover this photo and statement. I seriously tore this out of a magazine in high school and had it hanging in my track & field locker. This quite possibly was one of the best ad campaigns that targeted women’s body image in a positive light to ever exist. In a world where friends and relatives had different body shapes than me, it could have been easy for me to get down on myself or even feel bad about myself because of my muscular legs, namely thighs. But this ad really resonated with me, it made me feel strong and helped me realize how fortunate I was to have muscles and be able to use my body for athletics. Nike should really consider bringing these ads back and give them a chance to have a profound affect on the teens and women of today.
Which of your body parts are you most proud of?
