Body Image - Girls

Shocking statstics:The body fat of models and actresses portrayed in the media is at least 10% less than that of healthy women (British Medical Association, 2000) 6 out of 10 girls think they'd "be happier if they were thinner" (UK Teen Body Image Survey, January 2004)

While only 19% of teenage girls are "overweight," 67% think they "need to lose weight" (UK Teen Body Image Survey, January 2004). Stereotypically "perfect" beauty imagery affects some girl's (and some women's) perceptions of themselves.

Dr. Susie Orbach (psychotherapist, London School of Economics) has discovered that spending just three minutes looking at fashion magazines lowers the self-esteem of 80% of women. See the body image girls video for more.
