Living the Life: Women and body images

A topic that is very real for many women is body image and how we see ourselves -- and why we see ourselves that way.

It's a problem that's even more preveland today because of social media. For example, a woman simply showering in her gym's locker room became subjected to ridicule from around the world when a former Playboy Playmate Dani Mathers posted her photo to SnapChat and body shamed her.

Mathers may face charges, but the emotional effects the victim may feel could last a lifetime.

Southfield-based counselor Dr. Deborah Spence joins us on this segment of Living the Life to talk body images with us. You can hear advice from her by watching the segments in the video player above.
