OK, ladies, who here hasn't flipped through a magazine and thought, I wish I looked like her. If I just bought a new outfit, got a haircut, lost weight, bought new makeup, exercised more, etc., I would look like her. As part of their "Campaign for Real Beauty," Dove Soap has produced a pretty amazing one-minute movie that shows the "Evolution" of an "everywoman" into a supermodel. Wow, they get a lot of help.
Dove has also created the Dove Self-Esteem Fund which funds the uniquely ME! program for Girl Scouts in the United States, the BodyTalk program in the UK, and the Beyond Compare photo exhibition in Canada and the Netherlands.
Do I know that they are doing this to sell Dove soap, yes. Am I happy that some girl's or woman's self-esteem might be positively affected while they are selling soap, sure, why not?
Hat tip to the GOOD magazine blog for the story.
