Building Confidence & Self-Esteem in Young Girls / PSA Video

Posted by: laidtips  :  Category: Recent Tips


Young girls talk about body image and self esteem. Dove’s message: Things won’t change until we change them. The Dove Self-Esteem Fund. Whether it’s models that wear a size 2 or movie stars with exceptional curves, beauty pressures are everywhere. And when young girls find it hard to keep up, low self-esteem can take over and lead to introversion, a withdrawal from normal life, and a waste of potential. For example, a recent survey in the United Kingdom indicated that 6 out of 10 girls thought they’d “be happier if they were thinner.” Low self-esteem leads to introversion, a withdrawal from normal life and a waste of potential. For too long, beauty has been defined by narrow, stifling stereotypes. Women have told us it’s time to change all that. Dove agrees. We believe real beauty comes in many shapes, sizes and ages. That is why Dove is launching the Campaign for Real Beauty. Dove’s global Campaign for Real Beauty aims to change the status quo and offer in its place a broader, healthier, more democratic view of beauty. A view of beauty that all women can own and enjoy everyday. Over 50% of women say their body disgusts them (Dove Internal Study, 2002). The body fat of models and actresses portrayed in the media is at least 10% less than that of healthy women (British Medical Association, 2000) 6 out of 10 girls think they’d “be happier if they were thinner” (UK Teen Body Image Survey, January 2004) While only 19% of teenage girls are “overweight,” 67% think they “need to

    @supremeoverlord135 : I would encourage you to look in your mirror everyday and tell yourself that you love yourself. Eat healthy, eat when you are hungry. Also, avoid poisons in your diet like MSG, Nutra Sweet, Splenda, and fluoride. Avoid dieting, dieting is not healthy and messes up your metabolism and will make you get fat. 147 pounds is not fat, but if you get into bad habits like dieting, you will get fat. Love who you are and your body will respond positively and others will also.

    Beauty is about a huge rack, and a firm ass.

    And whichever is the easiest to cleep with and guzzle the most come.

    That all women are good for any way right ? Thats and cooking.

    getting fucked and cooking, womens two primary functions.

    I mean what else can they do ?

    This bitch needs to just shut up swallow and do it with a smile.

    C’mon, ladies! I am a 13 year old girl who thinks we need to come together. Why would you want to push someone down or insult them for something you’re going through too? If you’re a model, there’s nothing wrong with that! It’s what you love to do:) If you’re a gamer there’s nothing wrong with that because it’s what you love!(: But we are all women who are more geared up and ready than any other to help and support other girls. Are you with me?(:

  12. brownspottedbanana Says:

    the only thing women are good for is doing the dishes and providing fuck holes.

  13. YellowLittleDucky Says:

    Bull$hit! It’s all done in the name of profit – dove’s beauty campaign.

    Otherwise, unibeliver (parent company of Axe AND Dove) would not have so many sexualized females in their axe commercials.

    Seriously… Operation Beautiful is NON-Profit. That is the place to be, not some huge company going after your money by trying to raise self esteem AFTER perpetuating it.

    i think the girl in the pink top is really pretty :o!

    Here’s where to begin with your self confidence. Know this: Every person you ever meet, deep down, is a little bit fucked up. Trust me on this, I’ve never met anyone who doesn’t have issues of one sort. This doesn’t change with age either (I’m 23 and people my age still have confidence issues). The skinny girls who get all the guys’ attention? They often have the lowest self esteem of all. Don’t be surprised if many of them have eating disorders. You’re perfectly normal 🙂

    What makes a persons looks is that they can be themselves, Just be you and you will feel beautiful

    Hi. Great video. This is something everyone should look out for. Teens need to boost self esteem to become more self reliant and self controlled individuals.

    I got called ‘out of preportion’ the other day, by this girl. Apparently i have long legs, im flat chested and very big. Im 13 and 5 foot 9, I have a 32B bust, 34 inch inside leg. The flat chested and leg length isnt bad, i took it as a compliment, but the fact she called be fat+big behind my back upset me, Im only a UK size 10-12,but for my heigh thats average. I hvant been eating the last few days, I got so upset,but realised she was jealous-Im not changing for anyone.

    The saddest thing about this is that as long as the evil and corrupt bloodsucking corporations and media do not change and send a positive image out to the kids, nothing will ever change. The companies really only care about the best and quickest way to make money. Anything goes. Even if it’s about life or death. How sick is it to know you are making money by polluting and killing kids and adults health. Where is their conscience? This is what happens when materialism is worshipped and not God.
