Watch how women describe themselves to FBI trained sketch artist Gil Zamora, and then watch how others describe them. And it’s true – we need to be kinder to ourselves. How we see ourselves may not necessarily be how others perceive us, and it’s definitely something to think about.
Also, a personal note: you’re better off not reading the comments on the website and on YouTube. There’s just a whole bunch of negative (and not to mention unproductive) comments out there, along with people who can’t seem to enjoy the experiment for what it is. Here’s my thought process: if it’s any other person or company (for example, a small indie film company) who’s making this video instead of Dove, they’re going to get accolades and pats on the backs. People need to calm the heck down and stop blaming corporations for the choices that we’ve made as a consumer and as a society.
