“It impacts the choices in friends we make, jobs we apply for, how we treat our children. It impacts everything.”

This is three minutes that will change your perspective on how you see yourself, and the realities of how other women see you.

Dove’s latest “Real Beauty” campaign show a forensic sketch artist drawing a picture of a woman, who he never sees, based only on her description of herself. Then draws her based on how other women described her.
