“We’re not saying that models are ‘too skinny,’ we’re saying it’s kind of unrealistic and kind of annyoing that magazines only show skinny models.”
“We’re not saying that it’s bad to have a certain body type. That’s what the media’s saying.”
Today SPARK went to Seventeen Magazine headquarters to deliver over 24,000 signatures asking Seventeen to start running at least one un-retouched photo spread per issue. (Since this morning, the petition has gotten up to 32,500 and rapidly growing!) Excuse me while I clutch this photo to my chest and sob with joy at how amazing our group of young activists is. Julia, the girl who started the petition (second from the right in that killer ballet stance) is only 14! We’re so proud of her and what she’s started—including what looks like is going to be a fantastic ongoing conversation with Seventeen about how to support and represent girls!
