In today’s ceaselessly body-conscious media, stories about women and girls often present a narrow view of beauty. Unless we widen that definition to include attributes beyond looks, our children will miss out on a diverse range of inspiring, intelligent role models. 

Our articles and activities will help you and your child replace the influence of celebrity culture and celebrities in advertisements with more empowering messages, protecting their body confidence as they grow.

Start reading and sharing with your child today – you have nothing to lose but the appearance ideals.
