‘You Are Beautiful’ Is a Global Campaign to Share Women’s Portraits and Authentic Stories

Over the weekend, we were thrilled to came across a couple of articles featuring different body positive campaigns. While we as a society are still combating complicated and deeply ingrained ideals of beauty that have been carefully cultivated into a booming industry, it’s becoming more and more common for women who are all kinds of sizes to push back against that one-definition ideal. The result is a countless – and ever-growing – number of body positive grassroots movements.

Join the movement; value yourself and help those around you do the same. We’re each too precious to spend huge chunks of our lives tearing ourselves down.
