Dove believes beauty should be a source of confidence, not anxiety. Girls are listening – women just need to start the conversation. A simple act, such as starting a conversation about beauty, can make a world of difference. Dove is committed to inspiring all women and girls to reach their full potential. The Dove Movement for Self-Esteem opens up a world of opportunities for women to make a difference.
Vive Mejor’s Hablemos “Let’s Talk” is an initiative that Dove started to encourage young girls to be confident about being beautiful.
Did you know:
Anxiety about looks begins at an early age and holds girls back from reaching their full potential.
According to Dove Global Research 72% of young girls (ages 10-17) feel an immense pressure to be beautiful .
Only 11 percent of girls (ages 10-17) are comfortable using the word beautiful to describe themselves.
When girls feel bad about their looks more than 60 percent globally (age 15 to 17) avoid normal daily activities such as attending school, going to the doctor, or even giving their opinion.
What if you could take their opinion of what being beautiful is and replace it with something more meaningful? Would you do it?
Everyone has the opportunity to make a difference in a girl’s self-esteem.
More than half of girls globally say their mother is their number one female role model (66 percent U.S., 59 percent Canada).A simple act, such as starting a conversation about beauty, can make a world of difference.
