How do you feel when you look in the mirror?

Listen in pop-out player

Why do so many of us worry that we're too fat, too thin, too old, or simply, just not attractive enough?

Jane Garvey is joined by the psychotherapist and author of Bodies and Fat is A Feminist Issue, Susie Orbach. And we want to hear how much your self worth is caught up with your body image? How much time do you spend thinking negatively about the way you look? How much effort do you put into trying to change yourself through diet, hair dye, magic face creams, make-up or even surgery? And if you are immune to this way of thinking, do tell us how?

We'll be taking calls from 8am, so if you would like to take part the number will be 03700 100 444, or you can tweet us @BBCWomansHour or send us an email on the website

Body Image

How do you feel when you look in the mirror? On Monday I’ll be joined by the psychotherapist and author of Bodies and Fat is A Feminist Issue, Susie Orbach. We want to hear how much your self-worth is caught up with your body image? How much time do you spend thinking negatively about the way you look? How much effort do you put into trying to change yourself through diet, hair dye, magic face creams, make-up or even surgery? And if you are immune to this way of thinking, do tell us how?  We’ll be taking calls from 8am, so if you would like to take part the number will be 03700 100 444, or you can tweet us @BBCWomansHour or send us an email on the website.
