The Media's Influence On Our Girls

A friend recently shared this video with me. I'm not promoting Dove products, but this made me think seriously about the impact our culture and media have on young girls and women. I went through years of self-esteem issues related to my body image. It wasn't until after having babies that I really started to accept myself and my body as I am. What are we doing to build our girls up?

  1. I remembered seeing this a few years ago and it came to my mind when I just recently saw a movie that showed a girl dressed with not much. It made this moment seem like this is what made her beautiful and it bothered me. My own daughter is just entering the age when she is viewing herself and comparing herself with the media. So, I'm trying to find ways to combat that image.
