seventeen magazine?

I don't usually post about things like this but I thought that considering my readers here, it was actually pretty relevant! Brave 14-year-old Julia Bluhm proved that just one person can make such a big difference by starting a petition for Seventeen magazine to stop Photoshopping their models. She, like many others, was fed up with the unrealistic expectations placed upon young girls by being bombarded by airbrushed images. The petition caught on and got over 85,000 signatures and Seventeen ended up listening and creating their "Body Peace Treaty." You can find more about that here, and if this is a cause that strikes you particularly, you can sign this petition for Teen Vogue to do the same.

xo, e.m.
