Endangered Bodies

Quote:
Endangered Bodies is an international local-global initiative, launched by the international Endangered Species summits in March 2011. We challenge all those merchants of body hatred who turn girls and women against their own bodies.

There is a growing movement of girls, women and men who reject the horrors of body uniformity and cherish instead the variety of body shapes, sizes, colours, ages of us all. We are determined to change the visual landscape so it reflects all of us from New York to Nairobi, from Shanghai to Lima, from Delhi to Bangkok, from London to Tehran, from everywhere you are to everywhere we are.

Join us. Be part of positive change. Tell us your ideas. Dare to enjoy your body.

[Hahahaha, sorry Sally. I thought I'd be helpful and fix the URL only to discover that I'm an idiot. Took me four tries.]

Anyway, this seems interesting. I'll be keeping an eye on it - it looks like it's just started out. It'd be cool if they started something in Canada.

Phew! I'm glad you fixed it, but I feel better about messing it in the first place if you took four runs at it.

I was thinking of contacting them and asking what it would take to get Canada involved. Interested?

Yay, they're in Ireland! Not much stuff is. This is a great idea.
