Think Progress is reporting on an eighth grader who wrote Seventeen magazine asking them to not Photoshop at least one person per issue. Her online petition has over 81,000 signatures – and the magazine responded.
But not how you’d expect –
(T)he magazine has made a commitment to not alter the body size or face shape of the girls and models in the magazine and to feature a diverse range of beauty in its pages.
Score one for the eighth grader – and to Seventeen for doing the right thing.
