According to the website,
Endangered Species: Preserving the Female Body is an international summit to challenge the toxic culture that teaches women and girls to hate their bodies. Scheduled to be held in New York City on March 18th and 19th of 2011 by The Women’s Therapy Centre Institute, we will launch a comprehensive, worldwide campaign in collaboration with the leading organizations and individuals already on the front lines of this public mental health epidemic. This campaign will engage government officials, educational institutions, multi-national corporations, the fashion industry, and the mainstream media to join us in creating a new visual culture–one where the diverse, real beauty of women and girls is valued and magnified. The time is now. Take back your body. Re-imagine the world.
Now that sounds like something I can get behind!
