There is a big tug-of-war happening between old media and new media, in particular social media, in regards to beauty standards, which a recent campaign focusing on inner beauty addresses. Titled 'Stop the Beauty Madness,' it centers on portraits of women who have a warped sense of self-worth. Instead of focusing on inner beauty, it highlights women's thoughts on outer beauty.
For instance, one of the images starts a stunning child model who says, "What do I want to be when I grow up? Pretty." On the other end of the spectrum is an elderly woman who states, "Old isn't ugly. It's invisible." A need to encourage a focus on inner beauty has never been more necessary.
Stop the Beauty Madness invites people to create and post their own 'ads.'
