One of my mates has just launched the PinkStinks website, and what a great idea it is too:
PinkStinks is a campaign aimed at girls between the ages of 6 and 12 years old and their parents. We believe that the media’s obsession with stick-thin models, footballers’ wives, and overtly sexualised pop stars is denying girls their right to aspire to and learn from real role models. We aim to redress the balance by providing girls with positive female role models – chosen because of their achievements, skills, accomplishments and successes.
Well done Emma and Abi!
