Susie Orbach spoke at the DLD conference in Munich on Friday 11 June. She is interviewed by Dr. Maria Furtwangler-Burda and explains what we mean by "Endangered".
Endangered Species is an international summit planned for March 2011 to challenge the pernicious culture that teaches women and girls to hate their own bodies.
In March 2011, The Women's Therapy Centre Institute from New York and UK-based AnyBody (http://any-body.org/) will launch a comprehensive, worldwide campaign in collaboration with the leading organizations and individuals already on the front lines of this public mental health epidemic. This campaign will engage government officials, educational institutions, multi-national corporations, the fashion industry, and the mainstream media to join us in creating a new visual culture -- one where the diverse, real beauty of women and girls is valued and magnified.
In London we will be hosting a day in which activists will come together to share their work, to question policy makers and to celebrate women’s bodies. Following multi-media presentations and opportunities to network, the day will end with an alternative fashion show.
