Bradley's Body Project in the Spotlight
PAY EQUITY DAY 2015!!
Pay Equity Day..the day that represents the Gender Wage Gap...is here! Women, on average, make only about 77% of what men are paid annually, so a day in April is desginated to mark the fact that women would have to work until this date to make what the average man made by December 31, 2014. We'll be selling baked goods to commemorate this pay differential (Men will pay 1.00 and women will pay .77 cents) -- and to benefit the Center for Prevention of Abuse.

The Body Project--a collaborative effort by Bradley University faculty, students and staff to promote healthy body image and combat eating disorders on Bradley's campus and beyond--was recently featured on HOI-TV's Good Company. The Body Project was launched in 2006 by faculty, students and staff from the Department of Sociology & Social Work, the Women's Studies program and the University's Wellness and Counseling center. Sociology and Social Work students are invited to join us at upcoming events, and to join as active participants in the program. For more details see HOI-TV's Good Company interview.

His lecture, followed by Q & A, will begin at 6:30 pm on Monday, March 31st in the Marty Theater, located in the basement of Bradley University’s Michel Student Center.
