Advice to Help Our Daughters Build Self-Esteem | Dove Campaign for Real Beauty



Thank You for Making a Difference

Earlier this year I passed on a bit of  beauty advice from “Mom” to daughters  in my post Beauty Tips You Can Use – With Love – From Mom.

Now, I’d like to share with you more important information regarding self esteem, and how it’s especially important for moms with young tweens, pre-teens or teenage daughters, as well as grandmoms with granddaughters.

Too many girls and young women develop low self-esteem from hang-ups about looks and consequently fail to reach their full potential in later life. The Dove Self-Esteem Fund (DSEF) was established as an agent of change to inspire and educate girls and young women about a wider definition of beauty.  The DSEF is committed to help girls build positive self-esteem and a healthy body image, with a goal of reaching 5 million girls globally by 2010.  It has already reached 2 million young women.

The Dove Self-Esteem Fund is part of the Dove Campaign for Real Beauty, a global effort designed to widen today’s stereotypical view of beauty.  In the U.S., the DSEF supports the Boys and Girls Club of America and the Girls Scouts of the USA to help build confidence in girls 8-17 with after-school programs, self-esteem building events and educational resources.  In the United Kingdom and other countries, the Fund supports Body Talk, an educational program about body image and self-esteem in schools.  Since 2006, the Dove brand has conducted nearly 2,700 self-esteem rel=”nofollow”educational workshops around the world.

The Dove mission is to reach 5 million girls with self esteem programming by 2010. Since 2005, the brand has reached over 3.5 million girls globally. In fact, every time you buy Dove beauty care products your purchase supports the Dove Self Esteem Fund. This fall Dove launched the “Thank you for Making a Difference” program to thank supporters for building girl’s self esteem and to invite everyone to share their stories about making a difference in self esteem.

Dove will donate $1,000 to a national charity that supports self-esteem around the Holidays, on behalf of all our self esteem supporters to say “Thank You for Making a Difference”.

  1. I like that it promotes a postive healthy message to girls that they should accept themselves for who and what they are.

  2. I too like the message that they are sending to young women.

  3. This is one of my favorite campaigns out there right now, because there is just so much negativity in advertising and media that is shoved at young women, it makes me thankful to have all little boys! It’s great to see such a positive campaign from a brand that girls and women trust.

  4. I love this campaign, My own daughter is beautiful but still compares herself to the blow-dried, air-brushed beauties of the fashion world.

  5. I love Dove, always have. Many wonderful products to pick from. I can be myself is the message that Dove sends out. My daughter loves these products and I am glad she accepts herself and Dove of course. The body washes are what we both absolutely love. The smell, bubbles and the beautiful way our skin glows.

  6. This is a fantastic campaign from Dove. I’m glad they are continuing it and focusing on young girls now.

  7. It is so sad that most people feel they must live up to images that are impossible to meet and stay healthy. This is a good start. I truly wish natural beauty was more valued – and believe it will be as people become more aware of the toxins in hair dyes and make-up.

The website is very helpful too. You can print off workbooks and material from the site.
