Girls everywhere are suffering from crippling self-esteem issues — they are haunted by negativity surrounding body, sex and relationships brought upon them by media and peer pressure. But how? Cue the inspiring Beautiful Project — and the book from which it is born, Beautiful — to burst into our lives with the sole mission of transforming the lives of young women across the globe by empowering them to love themselves and speak their truths. Women are being objectified and sexualized in ways that have a very significant impact on self-esteem and the ability of each of us to value her own voice. Furthermore, today women enjoy opportunities that my grandmothers probably never dreamed would be possible for women. However with that, we have lost the value in the difference that defines men and women. We have forgotten to celebrate that which makes us unique as women; we have learned, at least for the past two generations, that being equal means being the same. As a result, we have fallen short in the way that we educate girls, particularly about beauty and sexuality. We need to focus on giving girls specific tools and skills to support them as they define themselves as adults.
