a must-watch video on our perception of beauty

I think this video is important for girls and women, especially, to watch–it reveals the distortions the media uses with models to convey their idea of societal beauty, instead of just letting the models look beautiful as they are. I think it’s an eye-opener for those who don’t know about it.

When we’re pushed on so many sides with ideas for societal beauty of women–movies, TV, magazines, and even some books–this is important. Yes, it’s an ad that promotes Dove–but it’s a great video. What do you think?

Thank you to @SairzBillington and @purpleshoes, great book peeps on Twitter, for the link.
