Description
The “beauty” industry makes $7 billion annually by sending negative messages to women and girls about their appearance in order to sell their products. They tell us to plump up our lashes, make our wrinkles and blemishes disappear, give our lips a flush of color and a kiss of softness, give our hair a silky glow, and make our skin touchably soft to “fit in” to their narrow standards of beauty. Shed light on these negative messages that trample on our self-esteem in order to make these companies large profits. . Come to our photo shoot wearing no makeup or hair products to send a message to other girls and women that our self-worth is not dependent on these products and that we are beautiful the way we are naturally. Bring your girlfriends or have your picture taken solo. Operation beautiful props will be provided. Contact Gretchen Edwards-Bodmer at womenctr@odu.edu.
