About Face asks: Does Seventeen Magazine Honor its Body Peace Project?

A B O U T – F A C E — blog » Seventeen doesn’t stick to its own “Body Peace Project” terms.

In this post, About Face questions the message that Seventeen magazine‘s Body Peace Project can send when the magazine is still filled with photos of thin, airbrushed models and articles about getting your best bikini body.

The Body Peace Project is a great thing, it does send positive messages about learning to accept yourself and promote healthy self-esteem. But does the rest of the magazine send the same message? What do you think?
