"Scars is a perfectly written book that covers all aspects of a teenage girl in distress. It goes over rape, homophobia and self harming. Cheryl Rainfield did beyond amazing to prefect this book. #BestBook #Scars #CherylRainfield "
This fall, New York City becomes the first city in the nation to tackle the issue of girls’ self-esteem and body image. Recognizing that girls as young as 6 and 7 are struggling with body image and self-esteem, (over 80% of 10-year-old girls are afraid of being fat and by middle school, 40-70% of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body), New York City is launching a self-esteem initiative to help girls believe their value comes from their character, skills, and attributes – not appearance.
HOLY SHIT DISABILITY REPRESENTATION IN A MAINSTREAM BODY ACCEPTANCE CAMPAIGN
and girls of color!
