By 13 years-old 53% of girls say they are unhappy with their bodies. When were we happy? Marie C. photographed and interviewed 4-8 year old girls and asked them what they liked about their bodies to find out.
I love that at this age, these girls like their bodies because of how fast they can run or because they can use them to draw or see things or have fun. I wish that the idea of a body as a functional thing, rather than something to be praised or scorned for its appearance, could prevail into puberty.
