Lily Allen has expressed concerns that social media is having a negative impact on women's sense of self-worth.

The 33-year-old opened up about the issue on Australian television saying, "A lot of progress has been made with women’s issues. I feel like with the rise of Instagram and social media, a lot of that is undoing that work, if I’m honest."

"I’m talking more about women thinking that their value is in the way that they look and that is it."

"That’s what Instagram tells young women – is that they need to be thin and they need to wear lots of make up and know their angles and that’s what gives them their spike in engagement which gives them their worth."
