Celebrate a Mom in Your Life

Young girls are inundated with unrealistic images and photoshopped ads. If you think it’s not affecting their self-esteem, think again. Girls need strong role models now more than ever. That's why we're teaming up with Dove to celebrate inspirational moms making a difference in their daughters' lives.

 

Read these moving stories of moms who are motivating girls to reach their full potential. If you know an inspiring mom who is a strong role model to the girls in her life, please nominate her for the Dove Celebrate Mom Contest by September 4th. Together we can teach a new generation of young women that true beauty is about confidence and knowing your true self.

If you are a mother, an aunt, a teacher, a friend, you possess the power to help change the minds of girls about the meaning of being beautiful.
