Today is the UK's first Face Equality Day, a day to increase awareness of Face Equality, the campaign to ensure that everyone is treated fairly and equally whatever the appearance of their face or body.

The trailer for Wonder, the movie has come out about based on the best-selling novel by RJ Palacio. WONDER tells the story of August Pullman, a boy with facial differences who enters fifth grade, attending a mainstream elementary school for the first time.

The book had rave reviews but the film is causing some controversy as the actor playing the young boy does not have any disability or facial differences.
