Look at the feature photos above. Can you tell which one is real? The only thing that’s different between the two photos is the color…yet one is a fake!
Take iTwixie’s Real or Fake Challenge:
Guess which photo is real in the comments section. You will win the challenge just by telling us what you think!
How do you feel about images of women being changed to make their faces, bodies, hair or other body parts different from the original photos?
You can get involved, too. Just write a blog and tell the world how YOU feel about the fake images magazines feature on their pages.
Write letters to your fave magazines and ask them to change their policies. Tell your iTwixie friends! Your ideas to make images more real and true will make a difference. Together, we can make a huge difference!
Get this: Jessica Barlow, petitioned Cleo to change its policy on images of young girls and Cleo did! Three Cheers for Jessica!!!
14 year-old Julia Bluhm started a petition for Seventeen Magazine to include one, photo-shop-free double page spread photo in every issue. She got over 84,000 signatures and Seventeen Magazine agreed! How cool is that?!?
You can get involved, too. Write a blog about what you think about all of this!
Send a letter to a publisher… start a petition… start a club… so many ways YOU can keep changing the world, iTwixie girls. YOU ROCK!
