Today’s Video: Dove Evolution

The Dove Self-Esteem Fund was developed to make real change in the way women and young girls perceive and embrace beauty. We want to help free ourselves and the next generation from beauty stereotypes. Too many girls develop low self-esteem from hang-ups about looks. Consequently, many fail to reach their full potential later in life. The Dove Self-Esteem Fund is an agent of change to educate and inspire girls on a wider definition of beauty. To make change possible, the Dove Self-Esteem Fund focuses its efforts to foster positive image-related self-esteem in two areas of activity: 1. The Fund develops and distributes resources that enable and empower women and girls to embrace a broad definition of beauty; 2. The Fund provides needed resources to organizations that foster a broader definition of beauty.
