How do we create real change?

Below is an article about body image from from The Herald Sun, and it was an article that really got me thinking. It was saying that despite interventions by different campaigns (like Girls In Real Life), women and girls still have a very negative body image overall because they’re so bombarded by media messages telling them to be thin. What do you think we can do to help girls realize that the media thrives on our low self-esteem, and that we need to rise above it if we want to feel good about ourselves? It’s a question I don’t know the answer to, and I would love to hear what people have to say.
