Girls confidence peaks at the age of NINE.
78% of girls don't like their bodies by age 17
70% of girls with low body-esteem "won't be assertive in stating their opinion" if unhappy with their looks (Dove Self-Esteem Research)
Media plays a major role, insisting girls' self-worth is based on their sex appeal. We're a nonprofit that teaches girls and young women to harness the power of media for positive change. Participants transform social media from a space known for breeding insecurity, to one where they express their authentic selves, challenge sexist media, and speak up for what they believe in. Girls don’t need a makeover; media does.
