Good work, everyone. Turns out, we’re all being much kinder to ourselves, as a new study reports that women don’t hate their bodies as much as they used to. The piece of research, which was presented at the American Psychological Association’s 124th Annual Convention, revealed that in spite of growing rates of obesity and our selfie-obsessed culture, women are becoming more accepting of their bodies. 

Bryan Karazsia, PhD, of The College of Wooster, who presented the research said, “While women consistently report being more dissatisfied with their bodies than men as far as thinness is concerned, that dissatisfaction has decreased over the 31-year period we studied.”
