Live Discussion Friday Aril 11th at 5pm (UK)

Are women under pressure to look young? Does the media portray only youthful images as positive images? Is looking ‘older’ seen as negative?

I’ll be joined by a panel of ‘Fab Women’, Sharon Watson, Judith Brady and Lindsey Agness as we debate and discuss this topic. We would love for you to join us!

    Fascinating concept that the pressure comes from beauty and garment industries. It also comes
    from the media with air-brushing photos of REAL PEOPLE until they look absolutely perfect. We
    have to remind ourselves that NO ONE looks absolutely perfect. And when there are products
    out there to fight aging, we fall into the trap. I suggest a good diet, walking at least 5 days a
    week and having a positive attitude. Thanks for this, Beth Havey

      Hi Beth, I think the point you make about nobody looking perfect is such an important one. I recently attended a photoshoot as I was being featured in a magazine. There were a couple of photos that the photographer and picture editor got excited about – however it took 4 hours, professional lights, a hair and makeup person, stylist and a wind machine to get the 2 images they wanted to use. I look very different in ‘real life’ and wondered if they even looked like me. I’m sure most of the images in magazines are far removed from the reality of the people they are of. I don’t think we can fight age – but just live the best possible life.
