This is a wonderful blog post about a photograph of a real woman in Glamour magazine. The quotes from the editor-in-chief of Glamour give me some hope. I suspect this is not the beginning of a groundswell of change, but I am sad that it's not.
Real women are beautiful and what I would far prefer my daughter to see. It's true that when we look at photos of the predominant body type in magazines today, we start to think there is something "wrong" with us. Why shouldn't "women's" magazines be uplifting and encouraging for women?
