evolution and onslaught

Dove created these commercials for their Campaign For Real Beauty. The campaign was launched in 2004 "to serve as a starting point for societal change and act as a catalyst for widening the definition and discussion of beauty." Their mission is "to make more women feel beautiful everyday by widening stereotypical views of beauty."

On their website they listed a startling statistics: Only 2% of women around the world describes themselves as beautiful. 81% of the women in the U.S. strongly agree that "the media and advertising set an unrealistic standard of beauty that most women can't ever achieve."

For more information, check out their website.

Your beauty should not come from outward adornment, such as braided hair and the wearing of gold jewelry and fine clothes. Instead, it should be that of your inner self, the unfading beauty of a gentle and quiet spirit, which is of great worth in God's sight.
1 Peter 3:3-4

Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised.
Proverbs 31:30
