Body image ladies

Oprah is banging on about body image,    her stats say:

Do You Like Your Appearance?
60s: 64%
Teens 69.3%

Do You Look Good for Your Age?

60s: 88.3%
Teens 80.2%

There are more on the site - go visit - mostly it's healthy stuff to hear, and may help anyone on a day of crisis.

And there's also an ace  article from Amy Bloom also on Oprah - thank you Amy,

"... Stop criticizing other women's bodies for sport or to soothe yourself. 

And start. Start admiring aloud the things you really do admire. Show what you love and value. If you think Marta of Brazil is fantastic, put up her poster and get a group together to watch women's soccer. If Ruth Bader Ginsburg or Hillary Clinton or Aung San Suu Kyi is your hero, say so. "
