45. Women Redefining Beauty

Finding Humanity

31-08-2022 • 35 mins

Study after study shows that looking at idealized images of women in the media results in lower self-esteem, particularly for young women and girls.

Hoping to challenge what is perceived as beautiful, designer Carrie Hammer founded Role Models, Not Runway Models, a movement credited for kickstarting the body positive movement in the fashion and beauty industries.

In this episode we hear how Carrie made history by creating the first New York Fashion Week show that included a model in a wheelchair. We talk about the negative influences of social media and idealized body images in young women, and explore solutions to this issue.

FeaturingCarrie Hammer, Fashion Designer and Founder of Role Models, Not Runway Models and Dr. Jennifer S. Mills, Psychologist and Associate Professor at York University in conversation with Hazami Barmada, Activist & Founder of the Humanity Lab Foundation.
