Most of us will never be models, but because media is powerful, this decision can impact our culture over time.
Young girls, in particular, feel pressure to look a certain way, based on what they see in magazines. Unfortunately what they often see are sexualized images of super-skinny young girls.
I spoke with model and author Carre Otis about Vogue’s move. She began modeling as a teen, knows the darkside of the business and wrote about it in Beauty Disrupted: A Memoir. Jenna Sauers of the Model Alliance also joined the conversation. The Model Alliance has been fighting for changes like this for years.

Do you think Vogue will keep their word? Think these changes can impact our culture?
