For young women and teenagers, it is rubbish in the age of Instagram to have to deal with unexplained weight gain or hair growing where it should not, and worries about the future.

Carolyn Harris: ...Kate Muir—prominent women in the media who are telling their story—as well as the Countess of Wessex and so many more voices.
