SPARK Ally of the day: Dr. Robyn Silverman

"I’m a Child/Teen Development Specialist, Body Image Expert, Success Coach and Author of Good Girls Don’t Get Fat. It’s an honor to be adding my spark to this movement because the sexualization of girls distracts our young people from embracing and sharing the unique and nuanced qualities, strengths, and gifts that they can offer the world. Girls are powerful in mind, body, and voice, yet this power is obscured when media strips them down to mere sexual parts. By standing tall and loudly beside them while encouraging them to speak up and demand the right to embrace their girlhood without sexualized pressures, we are sculpting a generation of assertive, multi-faceted, passionate girls…and boys who respect them for it."
