In Girls Matter, they make eight demands of politicians to put girls' interests at the heart of what they do across government. As an act of collective lobbying by a group of young women, it is unprecedented.
Growing up as a consumer of pop culture and women's magazines, there was only one body type to have: skinny. As a result we have a generation of perfectly proportioned women too embarrassed to get into their bikinis, flitting between fad diets and having internal battles when faced with their reflection in the mirror.
You didn't think anything could match the shame and despair you felt when diagnosed with PND for the first time.
