Dove’s Beauty Campaign

Shafi just showed one of Dove’s famous ads with real women.”Beauty is actually getting in the way of life,” said Shafi.  She also said the number one reason for subway delays in New York City are caused by women fainted due to hunger on the subway.

The commercials for Dove’s real beauty fund are particularly powerful.  I’ll try to find them on YouTube and post them shortly.

Shafi also gave the example of Fiji as a country that did not have any eating disorders before the introduction of beauty magazines.

The final clip that was shown was from the Tyra Banks Show after Tyra gave her famous speech decrying the tabloids that mocked her supposed weight gain.  The end of the clip drew loud applause.
