Only 4% of women worldwide think they are beautiful

According to the 2010 study by Dove Research: The Real Truth About Beauty: Revisited, only 4% of women worldwide think they are beautiful. This staggering fact succeeds in begging the question, What is your definition of beauty?

Here, we think that beauty is expressed by a woman's intelligence.  Check out our infographic below, which serves as an introduction to our new series: This is What "It" Looks Like, with the goal of encouraging a conversation about what beauty is and an environment of self-respect. Our current cultural perception of beauty is elusive to women. Rethinking beauty to reflect an alignment of the inner self with an external appearance could result in more confident women, respected by others, and working toward healthy ideals. 

Let us know what you think.
