Missrepresentation

All Walks – the amazing team of Debra Bourne, Caryn Franklin and Erin O’Connor – who work to educate the fashion world away from singularity of image to diversity – screened an American Documentary in Parliament ‘Missrepresentation’ the other day.

I was on the panel who took questions afterwards – chaired by Jo Swinson MP, my Liberal Democrat colleague (and co-founder with myself of the Body Confidence campaign). Jo now chairs the All Party Parliamentary Group on Body Image and I have taken Body Confidence into the government’s work on public health and mental health and well-being.

First we watched the film Missrepresentation. I can only recommend that you see the film itself. All Walks have made a short commentary on the film from some of those who came to see the screening. You can watch it here.
