What Part of Your Body
Do You Love?

Everyone should love what they see when they look in the mirror. Yet, advertisers, Hollywood and the fashion, cosmetics and diet industries work very hard to make us believe that no parts of our bodies are acceptable. Print ads and commercials reduce us to body parts — lips, legs, breasts — airbrushed and touched up to meet impossible standards.

For decades, Hollywood and the fashion industry promoted the diet pill, turning it into a multibillion dollar business. The new millennium tells women and teenage girls that face lifts and breast implants are as good for self esteem. Is it any wonder that more than 80% of fourth grade girls have been on some form of fad diet and by the eighth grade most of these girls will be using tobacco as a diet aid? Isn't it time to fight back? Women and girls spend billions of dollars every year on cosmetics, fashion, magazines and diet aids. They can't sell these images without our assistance. Get information, then take action!
