The House of Commons Women and Equalities Committee has launched a new inquiry into what causes poor body image and how people’s body image is impacted by companies, adverts, social media and Government policy.
There are a number of questions that could be informed by longitudinal evidence, specifically:
- Who is particularly at risk of poor body image?
- What are the long-term effects of poor body image on people?
- What strategy should the Government take to encourage healthy body image for young people?
- Is there enough research and data to support the Government in creating policy surrounding body image and social media?
The deadline for written evidence submissions is Friday 26 June 2020.
