#DropTheTowel This Summer!
The summer is fast-underway and Wear Your Voice feels like it’s the perfect time to launch our self-loving summer campaign: #DropTheTowel. This is a movement for all body shapes, sizes, colors, and genders to proudly proclaim that they are done hiding their already beautiful beach/pool/lake or otherwise summer body – and are ready to lose that cover-up and drop the towel! Trust us, collectively we understand how difficult it can be at any size when facing unrealistic societal norms, however, together we are taking a stand against this body shaming act of hiding by reminding you that yours is perfect exactly as it already is – and deserves to be free and frolicking all summer long!
If you would like to participate, email us at email@example.com!
