One of the Church of England's first female bishops is launching a campaign to tackle to negative body image.
Bishop of Gloucester Rachel Treweek has already visited a number of schools to talk to girls about the problem.
She said her experience as a teenager had inspired her to tackle the issue.
"I'm very aware that I did not fulfil what pretty girls are meant to be like," she told the Sunday Times.
"It's got worse since I was that age. I wasn't being bombarded by social media, I wasn't using a mobile phone or looking at the internet," she added.
The campaign will use #Liedentity and show photo shopped images in the hope of allowing teenagers to accept themselves for who they are.

In a world of fake news there’s never been a greater need for quality Christian journalism. Premier’s mission is to provide the Church with the most up to date and relevant news, told from a Christian perspective. But we can’t do it without you.
Unlike many websites we haven't put up a paywall — we want to keep our journalism free at the point of need and as open as we can. Premier’s news output takes a lot of time, money and hard work to produce. No one in the USA is sharing news like we are across radio, magazines and online so please help us to continue that today.
For a monthly gift of $11 or more we’d also be able to send you a free copy of the brand new Premier Bible, a wonderful Anglicised version of the NLT packed with exclusive bonus content, reading plan and resources to help you get the most out of scripture.
