Happy Saturday readers!
This post is brought to you courtesy of Catherine, our US correspondent. Dove did a social experiment in the US, called The Beauty Sketches. Women were asked to describe themselves to a police sketch artist (who couldn’t see them), who then drew them based on their description. The same women were then described by someone else, and drawn again.
Take a look at this video.
Readers, I know you don’t need any convincing that many women’s images of themselves are distorted. But this three minutes of video will bring that point home in entirely new ways. On top of all that, it’s really, really interesting. It makes you think.
Have a good weekend, one and all. Go and tell your friend she’s beautiful.
