Brooklyn Friends School Gender Bias

1,057 views

Published on

50 minute session delivered to 7th and 8thgrade girls. How does the media influence girls?

  • Today I have no problem, I even had an emotional time over the weekend where I did eat a little too much but it didnt affect me at all. I did not binge eat or get worried I just let the food digest, had a good rest and was back to myself the next day, just what normal people experience. ★★★ http://t.cn/A6Pq6OB6

  • This program and community of women has been the single most influential piece of my recovery after 11 years of bulimia. I recommend it to anyone who wants to learn to love themselves and claim a life of joy and freedom. ➤➤ https://tinyurl.com/y88w4b6s
