I am in the process of watching a documentary on Hulu called America the Beautiful. It is essentially about the social pressure women face daily to be perfect, and how some actually pay for that ideal with their lives. If you have the time, I highly suggest it! There’s a direct link below, and if you do watch it: What did you take away? How did you feel? If you had a daughter, how would you keep her from falling into a life of self-hatred and unrealistic expectations?

In a society where female body image is one of the more dire problems facing today’s society, this film illuminates the issue by covering every base: child models, plastic surgery, celebrity worship, airbrushed advertising, and dangerous cosmetics.
