Endangered Bodies is an international local-global initiative, launched by the international Endangered Species summits in March 2011. We challenge all those merchants of body hatred who turn girls and women against their own bodies.
We have now completed a series of successful summits in London, Buenos Aires, New York, Sao Paulo and Melbourne, which attracted wide media attention, and interest in more activity.
Following the summits, we are moving forward on many fronts, both nationally in all participating countries, and internationally with a global agenda. In the course of this, we have changed our name to ‘Endangered Bodies’, as we recognize the need for an umbrella term that includes women and all others that are affected.
Endangered Bodies is comprised of various different organizations worldwide
There is a growing movement of girls, women and men who reject the horrors of body uniformity and cherish instead the variety of body shapes, sizes, colours, ages of us all. We are determined to change the visual landscape so it reflects all of us from New York to Nairobi, from Shanghai to Lima, from Delhi to Bangkok, from London to Tehran, from everywhere you are to everywhere we are.
Join us. Be part of positive change. Tell us your ideas. Dare to love your body.
