    Overview

    About-Face equips women and girls with tools to understand and resist harmful media messages that affect their self-esteem and body image.

    Changes in our culture are calling for us to transform About-Face once again. Today teenage girls aren’t only feeling the effects of thin, white supermodels on the runway and in heroin-chic fashion spreads. They have smartphones in their pockets and constant access to web sites and social media that are filled with negative, limiting messages of all sorts. And their media isn’t only top-down: They’re making their own media via social media every day.
