Saturday Vids: In Honor of the Endangered Species Summit

Today, I’m honored to report that I’m one of the panelists for the New York City branch of the Endangered Species Summit - an international summit occurring during March 2011. The aim of the summit, as the London branch put it, “is to save future generations of girls from the misery that turns women against their own bodies.  The challenge – to make people understand how and why this is an emergency, to show them how they can do something about it, and to inspire them to embrace change.”

In honor of the summit, I’d like to take this opportunity to share some of my favorite videos on the topic of body image (and how generally fucked up it is in our society).

    I LOVED these videos. Thanks for posting them! I thought the last one in particular did a great job of making a visual representation of what it feels like to live under the media in this world.
