Body image and Melbourne Spring Fashion Week

This week, Body Image and Eating Disorders Awareness Week coincides with Melbourne Spring Fashion Week. The fashion and advertising industries put pressure on young people to conform to beauty ideals. Women’s Health Victoria calls on the government to make the Voluntary Industry Code of Conduct on Body Image mandatory so that we see a healthier and more diverse portrayal of women.
