About this title


After a ground-breaking collaboration between a new play festival and three State College schools, and after a record-breaking performance on March 24, 2010 in PSU's Pavilion Theatre, the journey of Body Language 2010 continues with the publication of Body Language: Cultural Conversations Reaching Out and Reaching In by Susan Russell. Debuting in the spring of 2010, The Body Language Project reached out to a population of young girls between 8-18 to talk about female body image and self- esteem, and in the seven-month relationship that formed between students at Radio Park Elementary, Park Forest Middle School, and State College Area High School, eyes and hearts were opened and lives were changed as each participant was given a chance to tell the truth about what it feels like to be a girl in the era of Lady Gaga and Facebook. Body Language: Cultural Conversations Reaching Out and Reaching In offers not only the story of these brave girls and the 4 teachers at the heart of Body Language 2010, the book offers a template that can be followed by any school system, community group, or organization that wants to empower young women by offering them an opportunity to observe the world around them and then choose how they want to live within it. The conversation that began in 2010 continues in 2011 as The Body Language Project collaborates with The Centre County Women's Resource Center and students in Penns Valley Middle School and Mount Nittany Middle School to talk about violence against middle school girls in rural Pennsylvania.
