Anorexia and Bulima have been two of the more common disorders among females,
but self injury is a newer and more secretive problem. Females, as well as males,
have this issue, but it is reported more often in the female population. Some of the reasons
for this problem are past abuse, not being able to cope with pain effectively, and low self
esteem. Some celebrities who have spoken out about self injury are princess Diana, Angelina
Jolie, Christina Ricci, and Fiona Apple. The Orange ribbon is a symbol, giving awareness
to this disorder. As well as websites and books such as The Bright Red Scream and The
Luckiest Little Girl in the World written by psychologist Steven Levenkron.
