The body confidence of young girls deteriorates rapidly as they progress through school, according to new research.
New figures from the Government Equalities Office show that one in five primary school age girls say they have been on a diet, while 87 percent of girls aged 11-21 think that women are judged more on their appearance than on their ability.
Poor body image among girls has also been associated with low participation in sport.
The research shows that 23 percent of girls aged 7-21 don't participate in exercise because they are unhappy with their body image, and 48 percent of girls think getting sweaty from taking part in sports is unfeminine.
There is also new insight into the long-term consequences of poor body image among young girls, which is associated with lower confidence, lower aspirations and lower social participation.

Monday will see the dissolution of Parliament and the official start of the election campaign. With some MPs destined never to return to the House of Commons, offices are shut down and the keys to the country are handed over to the civil service for six or so weeks.
The rise of social media has raised an interesting issue - given that from 00:01 on Monday 30 March, there are no Members of Parliament and consequently they have to give up the title Member of Parliament or MP. Nothing can convey the impression they are MPs - causing a major headache for the hundreds of members who have the initials in their Twitter name.
