When I was little, I especially liked drawing people, kids my own age. But while I drew boys normally, whenever I drew girls (including myself), I gave them hourglass figures with hips and breasts. Since then, I've realized that I internalized a lot assumptions about female body image from the media I consumed, and Disney films in particular.
The past few years have seen a massive groundswell in activism focused on challenging stereotypes and addressing media inequities. The newest venture is the Brave Girls Alliance. The Alliance is determined to raise awareness of both issues and encourage people to use the power of their voices and pocketbooks.
