The Amazing 14-Year-Old Girl Who Got Seventeen Magazine To Make Big Changes

Teen activist Julia Bluhm started a petition to get Seventeen Magazine to change the way they depict girls’ bodies in their magazines. After collecting tens of thousands of signatures, and organizing a protest outside the magazine’s offices, she was successful in getting Seventeen to agree to make some changes. Wohoo!

We support these courageous girls’ efforts and encourage Teen Vogue to do the right thing!
