Girls report struggling with body image and self-esteem at younger and younger ages and stories abound about bullying around appearance and sexual behavior.
- Over 80 percent of 10-year-old girls are afraid of being fat.1
- By middle school, 40-70 percent of girls are dissatisfied with two or more parts of their body, and body satisfaction hits rock bottom between the ages of 12 and 15.2
A fair amount of this unhappiness and pressure results from media– which presents images that tend to portray a narrow standard of beauty

A Kaiser Foundation study by Nancy Signorielli found that:
- In movies, particularly, but also in television shows and the accompanying commercials, women's and girls' appearance is frequently commented on: 58 percent of female characters in movies had comments made about their looks, as did 28 percent in television shows and 26 percent of the female models in the accompanying commercials. Mens' and boys' appearance is talked about significantly less often in all three media: a quarter (24%) of male characters in the movies, and 10 percent and 7 percent, respectively, in television shows and commercials.
- One in every three (37%) articles in leading teen girl magazines also included a focus on appearance, and most of the advertisements (50%) used an appeal to beauty to sell their products.
- The commercials aimed at female viewers that ran during the television shows most often watched by teen girls also frequently used beauty as a product appeal (56% of commercials). By comparison, this is true of just 3 percent of television commercials aimed at men.
- Girls of color are not seeing positive representation of who they are modeled in tv, radio or social media. It's time for a change!
