Endangered Species

 

Susie at the DLD conference Friday June 11, Munich


 

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".

Be inspired!

 

 

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.

Our internship posts have now been filled but do contact us if you would like to support this event in any way.

I am very interested in helping out with your campaign to make people more aware of sizeism. Currently I write a blog about women's body image and paint pictures of women of many different sizes and shapes. My intention is to help women come to love their own bodies.

If there's anything I can do to help with your campaign, please let me know. I would be happy to allow you the use of some of my images if that would be helpful. They can be seen on my webiste, www.susansinger.com.

Many thanks for the work you're doing.
