The Provincial Eating Disorders Awareness Committee (PEDAW) cordially invites you to our fabulous upcoming event taking place on Thursday, December 6th, 2012 from 6:30-8:00pm at the Croatian Cultural Centre: 3250 Commercial Drive, Vancouver.
Presenting Courtney E. Martin, the award winning author of, “Perfect Girls, Starving Daughters: How the Quest for Perfection is Harming Young Women.” Disordered eating, food and fitness obsessions have become normalized in today’s society. Courtney will explore how young women today have come to dangerously define success as “effortless perfection,” and come to a solution for it.
