Talking about the fashion industry as a whole and how it positively effects people lives but then change focus to the downsides of fashion and the three main points that in going to talk about.

To Finished I will write of summery of each section and overall and how these areas are not somewhat changing and how we can encourage them to change.


The pressure on models to be thin—and the resultant pressure on girls, boys, women and men to conform to an unattainable ideal—is immense.
