When Dove Cries (We Should Listen)

Has anyone seen this?

Or this?

Amazing. And so important to share with the young girls of today. I've watched them with both of my daughters, ages 15 and 12.

And now a photographer/documentarian (I believe) Michael Crook has partnered with Dove to bring us, "Selfie." This film is wonderful not only because it illustrates how young girls perceive themselves and the media imagery which bombards them every day, but it also includes their mothers. And we moms, whether we like it or not, significantly impact how our girls interpret messages about beauty and body image. This video really resonated with me (see my last post).

I don't use Dove soap because it just doesn't work for me (skin issues). But I'm going to support them every way I can. As an American woman who has suffered at the hands of fashion editors and media opinion, I say, "Go Dove!!"
