📜 History of Turn Beauty Inside Out Day

By the time they are 13, 53% of adolescent girls are unhappy with their appearance, according to the National Institute on Media and the Family. When they turn 17, this proportion rises to 78%.

Girls have practically been taught by the media a false view of weight and the need to be thin at all costs, leading them to feel that thinness and how they look are indicators of their self-worth. (The majority of these females witness famous people who are successful yet terribly thin and gain significant television and film roles.) Certain eating disorders, like bulimia and anorexia nervosa, are brought on by this drive.

Women and young girls are urged to focus on the idea of beauty from the inside by participating in “Turn Beauty Inside Out Day.” This holiday also aims to draw attention to how media portrayals of women negatively impact how girls, young men, and boys feel about themselves and other women.
