"Women's Bodies: The Naked Truth"

"Boys have peeing contests, but girls-and later women-are more ashamed of nudity," says Cathy Conheim, a La Jolla, CA, psychotherapist who decided women needed more chances to compare their bodies to real bodies-not just to ideally beautiful ones. The result is the statuettes pictured at left-portraits of 13 women by T.J. Dixon. (The "Real Women Project" can be seen in a traveling exhibit called "The Changing Faces of Women's Health," or visit RealWomenProject.org.)

The Canyon Ranch Health Resort uses one set to help women work on their body image." Once women understand that in the quest for a 'perfect' body they demand the impossible of themselves, they can begin to change," says program director Huffman.
