Bride & Prejudice
For years, women have been urged to adhere and conform to the societal norms of beauty, especially in the run-up to marriage. But as we enter a New Year, it’s time to do away with these stereotypes and encourage and embrace ourselves for who we are. With Dove’s #StopTheBeautyTest, we aim to create a world with women who are beautiful, confident, and empowered in their own skin

A new Chapter
Beauty stereotyping – we’ve all fought it or succumbed to it. Very few women have been spared the horror of meeting the ideals of beauty dictated by the world. But change must start from within, be it in the way we see ourselves or others. It’s time to acknowledge that ‘beauty’ cannot be defined by or limited to certain characteristics. With Dove’s #StopTheBeautyTest, we’re urging you to take the onus on yourself. Celebrate your beauty and that of others around you. Grow from your struggles, grow with those of others as you uplift them. And, while you’re at it, take inspiration from these strong women who went from being books judged by their covers to changing the narrative themselves
