The pressure to look attractive is the most negative thing about being female, according to 47 per cent of those polled in the annual Girls' Attitudes Survey, commissioned by Girlguiding UK.

More than 1,200 girls between the ages of seven and 21 took part in the survey, which was not restricted to Girlguiding members.
