Pecking Order


"A Harvard University study showed that up to two thirds of underweight 12-year-old girls considered themselves to be too fat. By 13, at least 50% of girls are significantly unhappy about their appearance. By 14, focused, specific dissatisfactions have intensified, particularly concerning hips and thighs. By 17, only 3 out of
10 girls have not been on a diet - up to 8 out of 10 will
be unhappy with what they see in the mirror."
