  • 'Hilarious and a timely look at women and our bodies' Juno Dawson

    'Honest, rebellious and completely refreshing' Fearne Cotton

    Charli Howard grew up thinking that she wasn't good enough. She wasn't pretty enough. She wasn't rich enough. She wasn't thin enough. Fitting in wasn't exactly easy.

    Looking at the smiling girls in magazines, she came to the obvious conclusion: to be accepted, she has to be 'perfect'. She had to be a model.

    But what magazines don't tell you is that you can't Photoshop your problems away (and they can Photoshop a lot).

    So, when you're the thinnest you've ever been, your agency fires you, and you're battling anxiety and an eating disorder to boot, how do you get through it?

    You get angry, go viral and discover that, after all that, you're not alone. At least that's what Charli did.

Charli Howard is a model and body positivity ambassador. When she was fired for her size by her modelling agency, she wrote a powerful letter to her agents which went viral, and has used that platform to create The All Woman Project, a charity which goes into schools to educate about body image and mental health issues.
