An Oldie, but Goodie

Many of you may have seen this already. In fact, I just read that this video was one of the most-linked-to videos amongst bloggers when it first came out. So very un-original of me. But it's always fun to watch again. It's such a powerful piece. And it may be the first time for some of you. In any case, I think it's brilliant. So I'm posting it.

It was part of Dove's Campaign for Real Beauty. In addition to showing normal looking women's bodies in their ads, they have some pretty cool self-esteem building tools for girls on their site. So important in our beauty obsessed culture to teach young people to feel good about who they are, don't you think?


  1. Don't tell Dove, but as much as I appreciate their campaigns, I am not a fan of their products. There are plenty of other options out there that contain ingredients you can pronounce and that are healthy for your skin.

  2. Good to know you're so honest. Too bad our girls are being lied to.
