Yesterday, I finished the book Reviving Ophelia by Mary Bray Pipher. It speaks of a struggle between young girls and their self-esteem. We bombard these young impressionable girls with images and ideas that are hurting them internally and externally. I ran across this PSA from Dove that illustrates some of the consequences of our current societal messages.
How do we change the messages we are sending? How do we both help and prevent the saving of our young selves?
