The 2011, Pretty as a picture study revealed that 47% of young women said: ‘Seeing adverts using thin models makes them want to diet/lose weight and they feel more conscious of the way they look.’
This workshop celebrates the female body and educates young women, answering many ‘am I normal?’ questions. It explores the topic of female body hair, cosmetic surgery, breast awareness and body positivity, covering the female reproductive system and the chance to ask anonymous questions.
