a collective shout for a world that is free

The repercussions of girls growing up believing this and this becoming their lives is detrimental to the progression of our society! please understand the impact we are all having on the lives of young people. We must break away from what our society has made us believe about worth and beauty as a woman. A girl is more than her body parts. She is not defined by how "hot" she is or how may clothes she has, or what size she fits in to. We must overcome our own insecurities and be strong for the girls who have no guidance and help against a society that convinces them they are never good enough!!!! 

“Girls aren’t born hating their bodies. They aren’t born hating their lives. Something was happening that was poisoning girls’ spirits.”

“Problems such as eating disorders and self-harm, which once had been extremely rare, were now happening in every classroom and every street. But more than this, the average girl was stressed and depressed in a way we hadn’t seen before," - Steve Biddulph
