Welcome to the New York site of the Endangered Bodies International Campaign, a groundswell movement that is wreaking havoc on the status quo around the globe. Women are fed up with the sea of visual images that do not reflect and represent the diversity of our bodies. Our mission is to take a stand against the toxic culture that teaches women and girls to hate their bodies.
Through activism, we share our aim to expose the industries that profit from body insecurity, to challenge sexual objectification, to call out size discrimination, and to create social conditions which will enable girls to grow up loving -- not hating or rejecting -- their bodies.

Also… The BMI, (Body Mass Index), committee is nearing completion of their educational brochure! The committee is currently working on methods of disseminating vital information that will help educate parents and educational institutions about the damaging impact of weighing, judging and humiliating children in our schools. The BMI pamphlet provides in-depth information about healthy, empowering ways to deal with issues around food, body-image and weight, as it pertains to children.
