Following on from BBC 3's Miss Real World Documentary
'The Skin Lightening Debate'
Why do people lighten their skin?
Skin Lightening - Right or Wrong?
We want to get a balanced view of what the public think about skin lightening. Recently in the media skin lightening has hit the headlines a few times and we want to know what you think.
We want to conduct a live debate show featuring a panel of experts and a split audience who are for and the others against skin lightening / whitening serums and creams.
We have recently attended the Miss Real World debate on BBC3 which will be a part of a bigger show. The live debate was hosted by Shazia Mirza. The program explored the different things women go through to make themselves look beautiful.
The program Miss Real World will be aired on BBC 3 later this year.
Our program will differ slightly as we want to discuss the views of Asians and skin lightening and want to know if the opinions differ whether you are a Bengali, Pakistani or Indian and whether you are a Muslim, Hindu or a Sikh.
The debate should last about 4 hours and will be compressed to about 1 hour. We will either be holding them on Manchester or London which is yet to be decided.
If you are interested in being a part of the debate and you have a strong opinion either for or against skin lightening then we'd love to hear from you.
Drop us an email using our contact form here and we will get back to you with more information on the debate.
