Where’s the Outrage?
Doesn't it sometimes seem like popular culture is focusing on things that maybe just don't matter all that much (and, we like gossip as much as anyone) and on those things that affect one or two of us but not that many of us? Does it ever seem that maybe we should spend more time talking about things like this…
– 50% of children 8-10 years old report being "unhappy" with their bodies?
– More than 81% of 10-year-olds said they are terrified of "getting fat."
– 80% of women feel worse about themselves after seeing a beauty ad?
We could go on – and on. We won't though. But we will invite you to keep joining us – and so many others fighting this fight day to day – to try and make a difference. We'll ask you to use your voice to ask "WTF" is going on and question how we begin to change it , helping people of all ages feel more better? Maybe together we can make the conversation louder, and a difference. Maybe?
What do you think we can do – individually and collectively?
