You Are Beautiful

The aim of the You Are Beautiful project  is to raise awareness of distorted beauty standards in the media for young girls. We believe that young girls are under increasing pressure from the media to look a certain way.

We are raising awareness by conducting workshops in schools across the UK and by producing a magazine that doesn’t air brush its images.

Eating disorders, self-harming and a lack of confidence in young women indicates an unhealthy lifestyle underpinned by the glorification of stereotypes in the media. The worst cases result to bullying and suicide.

1.6 million people in the UK are estimated to be affected by eating disorders, according to the Joint Commission Panel for Mental Health. www.jcpmh.info/wp-content/uploads/10keymsgs-eatingdisorders.pdf

Around 8% of women have bulimia at some point in their lives. Every year, 2% of all women will experience anorexia, with the condition lasting for an average of around 6 years. www.nhs.uk/Conditions/Anorexia-nervosa/Pages/Introduction.asp

We believe that schools have an obligation to improve the situation, which is why the You Are Beautiful project  is working so hard  to reach out to every school in the greater London area.

We are currently offering a free trail to new schools that might be interested in our workshop programs.
