Read an interesting article from The Independent today.
It's sad to hear so many women with the potential to succeed in life are threaten by the pressure to 'look good'.
This makes me very thank-you for the existence of Girlguides, they offer not only a girl-only space they also carry out research into the pressures that girls face in their annual Girls Attitudes Surveys
I think its important to nip these self-esteem issue's in the bud before they develop into more serious mental health problems such as anorexia.
It may just be a PR exercise but Dove are launching a self-esteem programme in the UK. I'm not too sure what this will entail but I'm glad to see companies making an effort to tackle this problem.
