Saturday, March 22, 2014
3 p.m. to 5 p.m.
Stonestown Galleria (next to San Francisco State)
3251 20th Ave, San Francisco, CA 94132

 Let’s stop the catfight!

Come join About-Face to raise and spread awareness about the attention that media gives female aggression making it seem normal and accepted in society.

For our action, we’ll be asking folks to really think about what they say or do when they see bullying between girls happen in real life, a Twitter campaign (#catfightcomebacks), and to tell reality entertainment that this isn’t acceptable! A table will be set up with information and volunteers will be available to discuss this important issue.

Join us Saturday at Stonestown Galleria on the second floor ,across from the food court, next to Banana Republic, to comeback to catfights!

Real Size, Not Lies! — Action to End Vanity Sizing

**SIGN THE PETITION to end the clothing-size drama by clicking here.**

Sunday, November 17, 2013


Market Street at Powell Street (Cable Car Turnaround), San Francisco, CA

Join About-Face, led by an awesome group of teen girl activists from Washington High School, for an action to end vanity sizing. We will be downtown, showing off our clothesline of size lies, sharing information, spreading our petition to end vanity sizing, and handing out clothing tag labels with positive messages that you can put in your jeans to remind yourself that you are so much more than a number.

Clothing stores change their sizes to manipulate our emotions and empty our wallets.

It’s time to end vanity sizing. No numbers, no labels, just style.

You are awesome-sized, you are you-sized, you are perfect.

Can’t make the action but want to support the girls anyway? SIGN THE PETITION to end the clothing-size drama by clicking here.

Come on out and support the teen girls! For media requests, email us at press [at] about-face [dot] org.
