Action on Body Confidence

Speaking out to make change in our communities

8 out of 10 girls are so concerned with the way they look that they opt out of important activities.

Imagine a world where no-one felt this pressure. WAGGGS and Dove have been working together on Free Being Me, our body confidence badge programme. Since 2013 we've reached over 3.5 million young people in 120 countries... but there’s still more to be done!
