What I really wish is that you would credit the original founders of Body Shop, Peggy Short and Jane Saunders, whose beautiful, incredibly well run series of shops in Berkeley and the Bay Area are what Anita copied when she went back to London, after traveling to CA.
Anita never credited the two women, and finally had to buy the name out in order to branch out into the US, so their sweet perfect stores are now called Body Time, and make exquisite customized lotions and potions for a very discerning clientele in the Bay Area.
Here is another in-depth article about their story, and Anita's role in it. Important women do need to be recognized, but let's make sure they are the right ones.

There is much more to Anita Roddick's story. She was a powerful, intelligent person, but she was not an innovator, and her company suffered due to some very questionable actions on her part. For an in depth article on this topic I suggest you follow this link:
