From the story:

"Until last weekend, I thought of myself as the kind of woman who wasn’t affected by how the media portrays women. I thought I was too aware and too savvy to hold myself to standards of beauty that are unreal. Magazines Photoshop everybody and everything. Everyone knows that.

I now realize how stupid it was—and the hubris it took—to imagine that I was above the influence.

It was the leaked, unretouched photo of Cindy Crawford last weekend that shocked me and many others out of our delusion. The photo isn’t the first of its kind, and Crawford didn’t leak it in an attempt to start conversations about body image. Charlene White, a British TV news anchor for ITV News, did."
