Did you know that only two percent of women describe themselves as beautiful while 72% rate their beauty as average and 47% consider their body weight as too high?
And that 86% of the approximately 10 million American girls and women who suffer from an eating disorder report the onset of their condition by age 20?
And that the world spends $38 billion on hair care products, $24 billion on skin care, $18 billion on makeup and $15 billion on perfumes every year?
All Made Up is the book all teen girls (age 11-15) need—and women wish they’d had while growing up. It questions which women are most frequently celebrated by the media and why. More importantly, it investigates why most pop stars, models and Hollywood starlets have the same look—and teaches girls that it’s not their bodies that need to be fixed (and waxed, tanned, plucked…) but rather today’s commercially-driven beauty standards.
