What role does mental health play in the health industry?

As a response to diet culture, in 2019 Fanny Beckman created the photo series "Women of My Generation". By portraying women who felt unrepresentated in mainstream media, wearing only underwear, she challenges the modern beauty standards. But, what started as a photo series has uncovered conversations which are just as important.

Every week, Fanny invites a special guest to share their story. This podcast covers everything from fashion to mental health issues, activism to family relationships - and most of all: body image.


Statistics show that women on average spend 30 years of their lifetime thinking about their bodies.

In this episode, Fanny Beckman meets Hermione Berendt to discuss how activism has helped them both finding a bigger purpose in life, and how it has helped them avoid thinking about appearance.
