Strong. Tough. Dirty. And still beautiful.

Today is International Women’s Day. A time to celebrate all the wonderful and inspirational women in our lives. We celebrate our diversity. We celebrate our accomplishments. We celebrate our beauty. We celebrate our friendships. We celebrate each other.

MissRepresentation.org is a call-to-action campaign that seeks to empower women and girls to challenge limiting labels in order to realize their potential, and to encourage men and boys to stand up to sexism.

  • 3 out of  teen girls feel depressed, guilty and shameful after spending 3 minutes looking through a fashion magazine.
  • 48% wish they were skinny as a model.
  • Twenty years ago, fashion models weighted 8% less than the average women. Today that number is 23%.
  • 31% admit to starving themselves to lose weight.

We are all beautiful and we all need to be told more often even when we have some dirt and grass in our hair!

How will you celebrate the women in your lives today?

  1. One of my favorite quotes is, “it’s the hand that rocks the cradle that rules the world.”. I may have that a little bit wrong but you get what I mean. 🙂

  2. Great image there Steph. Our strength certainly does come in all shapes and sizes.

    Cheers!

  3. I love this post & the video’s you shared. (not the statistics) I think it is important to instill confidence & being unique over media bar-ash with our daughters, strength in knowledge & being our healthy best not societies healthy. It seems to be getting worse, I definitely see the media pushing the boundaries with commercials & women. Being supportive of one another as women is so important. PS. thanks for linking up this week!
