Meet Heather, a boxer from Brooklyn. Heather is constantly told she’s “too pretty to fight” but her face has nothing to do with her boxing. Then there’s Jessica, who as a girl was told that only skinny girls could dress well. Today, she is a fashion icon and uses her blog to show that size doesn’t matter when it comes to style.
What do these women have in common? They’ve refused to be held back by comments about their looks, and those are just two of the extraordinary stories in our latest campaign.
Somewhere along the way, it has become the norm to judge women based on their appearance and use their beauty against them, holding them back, limiting them. Whether that’s in gossip columns, conversations or on social media. In the latest global research conducted by us, 7 out of 10 women agree that they get more comments at work about their appearance than their achievements.
