The Truth

According to the 2011 Dove Research: The Truth about Beauty survey; 72% of young girls feel
pressure to find a way to feel good about their self. This means that our society is producing a
population of young women, of whom the vast majorities have poor self-esteem and self-confidence.

These young girls are being delivered into the world without the emotional skills necessary to
overcome hardship and become the leaders of tomorrow.
