GIRL POWER: What Happens When Thousands Of Teen Girls Ask Seventeen To Stop Selling Them Out?

I thought this would get some attention, but this is above and beyond.


Back in April, SPARKteam member and all-around cool girl Julia Bluhm asked Seventeen to post one unaltered photo spread a month. Then, SPARK teamed up with Miss Representation, LoveSocial,, and I Am That Girl for the #KeepItReal campaign, and thousands of people responded on Twitter, Instagram, and through blogs, asking women's and girls' magazines to stop Photoshopping the ever-loving crap out of every woman's body that graces their pages.

They won.

Seventeen has agreed to stop altering girls' faces and bodies. Check out the article below!

So, what's next? Teen Vogue. Sign the petition asking them to give girls images of real girls!
