Appearance Bullying and Lookism


In this panel Professor Widdows is joined by Martha Evans and Phyllida Swift, to discuss the prevalence of appearance bullying, the most common form of bullying, and why this needs to be taken as seriously as other forms of bullying.

Martha Evans is the Director of the Anti-Bullying Alliance. She also coordinates Anti-Bullying Week and leads the Alliance's policy and campaigns work. The Anti-Bullying Alliance is a coalition of organisations and individuals who work together to raise awareness of the unacceptability of all forms of bullying. They support a number of positive strategies for dealing with and challenging bullying, including policy and advocacy work, local and national educational programmes on how to address and stop bullying, and Anti-Bullying Week. They identify 'appearance related bullying' as a key concern, and have previously discussed how it can be connected to implicit bias and banter.

Phyllida Swift is the CEO of Face Equality International, where she is responsible for agreeing its strategy; developing its activities, website and influence; encouraging NGOs to join the alliance; supporting its Members; and arranging Forum and Council meetings. Face Equality International is an alliance of NGOs, charities, and support groups working at national, regional, and international levels to campaign for 'face equality'. They support those with facial differences and disfigurements, and aim to create a world where everyone is treated fairly whatever their face looks like.
