“My desire is to see this generation of females restored to a profound appreciation and a secure assurance of their own true beauty, uniqueness, potential and worth!”
- A survey of 2,000, 16- to 25-year-olds, conducted by YouGov on behalf of the Prince’s Trust, found that 14% of young people felt that life had no purpose and 10% felt life was not worth living. For young people not in education, employment or training, 27% felt that life had no purpose.
- A survey of 1,000 girls showed two thirds wanted to be glamour models and a quarter wanted to be lap dancers.
- Girls with low self-esteem are three times more likely than girls with high self-esteem to engage in harmful and destructive behaviors that can leave a lasting imprint on their lives, such as eating disorders, cutting, smoking and drinking heavily.
- 7 in 10 girls believe they are not good enough or do not measure up in some way, from their looks or performance in school, to their relationships with friends and family members.
The problem is that these issues have become so common; they are no longer considered issues. As time ticks by, the urgency only seems to increase, as more and more people are beginning to realise the serious effects of not (or poorly) addressing issues of low self-esteem; misguided self-perception; mass produced and heavily depended-upon beauty and clothing items; a severe lack of positive, varied and contemporary role models; degrading aspirations and life goals…and the list goes on, as you may well know.
