Readergirlz: August 2008


Read the new issue of readergirlz.

This month's theme is Body Image. We're highlighting three books by Melissa Walker: Violet on the Runway, Violet by Design, and Violet in Private, the story of a self-proclaimed "P-L-A-I-N" girl who unexpectedly becomes a supermodel and has to deal with the pressures and contradictions of the modeling industry.

Talk About It

Do you think the fashion industry promotes unrealistic images of what women's bodies look like? If so, how can we help change that? Would you ever become a model? Strike up a discussion at the readergirlz forum. Also check out the Love Your Body Foundation and mark your calendars for Love Your Body Day 2008.

Join our hour-long chat with Melissa Walker on Thursday, September 4th starting at 6 PM PST/9 PM EST at the readergirlz forum.
