I just read Laurie Halse Anderson's new post on her blog, Mad Woman In the Forest, to which I've linked. Read it. And if you have a teenage daughter or friend or relative, make her read it too. Ditto for Anderson's Wintergirls. Eating disorders are killing girls and women, and the fashion industry is helping them do it. Take whatever action you can to help make it stop. Aren't there enough insane ways for people to die in this world without the addition of cultural directives to our daughters to starve themselves into oblivion?
