UK Feminista launched a campaign to end cosmetic surgery advertising yesterday (15/03/12) with this open letter published in the Guardian, supported by the British Association of Aesthetic Plastic Surgeons (BAAPS), the Medical Women’s Federation and prominent feminists including Natasha Walter.
Our petition is live here, and we published a report, Cut It Out – End Cosmetic Surgery Advertising, that brings together evidence making the case for Government action to stop cosmetic surgery advertising in the UK.
Thank you to everyone who has signed the petition so far, please keep sharing it.
We surveyed four of the most read women’s monthly magazines – Cosmopolitan, Marie Claire, Elle and Vogue – to track the amount of cosmetic surgery advertising during 2011 and today Marie Claire responded by asking their readers what they think of the campaign.
Add your voice by signing the petition to stamp out cosmetic surgery advertising.
