Here at Slutty Girl Problems, we’re all about saying ‘no’ to the labels that society places on us. We’ve been called ‘slut’ before and we know that it’s a word that ultimately has no real meaning. YOU decide who you are – not society.

The same can be said for any number of other labels, be it our race, gender, sexual preference, size, or any other category that others use in a poor attempt to define who we are. There’s no one way to define someone’s identity and The Identity of She is a blog (and so much more!) focused on breaking down these boxes and labels, encouraging women to live by their own standards. And that’s definitely a message we can get behind, from the four fierce women who run T.I.O.S. to the badass statement apparel they sell. We’re loving it and we want you to be a part of the self-love revolution! (BTW: Wanna get 10% off on their clothes? Enter our special code “TIOSSluttyGirl”!)So, how can you get involved in the new wave of body positivity and self-compassion? Start with The Dear Body Project, which is gearing up to publish a second issue.  They’re still accepting submissions!  Submit work that is related to their second edition of the magazine: female empowerment, the history behind beauty standards, and an ode to women’s history month.

The winner of the challenge will receive a full page feature and a front cover mention in the second issue of Dear Body Project Magazine – a visual exploration of self-image. Some of the strongest pieces from the challenge will be selected to be featured in the magazine as well. Talk about a dream come true!

We’ve got some prompts to get you started:

  • How has your relationship with your body been affected by beauty standards?
  • How old were you when you first experienced the pressure of beauty standards and how has it affected you?
  • How do you feel about the #metoo movement, and how it has impacted society?

Submission Guidelines:

  • Writing (articles, blogs, short stories, poetry, et cetera). No more than 700 words.
  • Song and Dance (music videos, songs, dance routine, et cetera). No more than 3-5 minutes. Longer submissions need prior approval via email. Submissions must be made to a public YouTube or SoundCloud. Link must be accurate when sent to us.
  • Photography / Videography / Fine Art (paintings, drawings, sculpture, short films, photos, videos, et cetera). For fine art please submit high quality pictures of the work. All files are no larger than 25 MB.
  • Past work is alright! You don’t need to create new work to be able to participate in the challenge. 
  • Submit all entries to: [email protected] by February 19th, 2018.
