500,000 young girls have made videos like this, this is what our media’s representation of women is doing to our daughters.
We focus far too much on beauty and often use the words like pretty and cute to describe female children. We are more than our face, what we see in the media is a continual misrepresentation of our sex that is harming the self esteem of girls as young as 5.
So next time you speak with a young girl compliment her wit, intelligence determination, kind heart or sense of humour. These are the qualities we want to encourage, it doesn’t matter what they look like, true beauty is on the inside.
