Canton, NY, Mar 01, 2013 — Women are consistently rendering images from the media of the "ideal" body type. This has driven women to sacrifice their natural shape with unhealthy practices. Abigail Moss has utilized her senior project at St. Lawrence University as an opportunity to promote the voices and stories of women she has encountered including her own who have struggled with food and body image. Her play, Witness: Real Stories of Women and Strength will be performed tonight at St. Lawrence University.
Abigail hopes that the power of performance will be an experience for the audience that will make a difference in the way that women feel and think about their own body. Kitty Higgins, the NCPR news intern interviewed Abigail and had a conversation about her inspiration for the performance, it's importance and the messages the media sends.
