It's time to instill more confidence and character in our girls, now more than ever. Recent polls have shown a conflicted relationship between girls and fashion, and how they feel about images in fashion. As a result, Girl Scouts of the USA (GSUSA) has decided to host a panel to discuss fashion and media and its role in building positive self-esteem for girls. This event will highlight GSUSA's work in this area and the long-standing partnership with Dove Self-Esteem Fund. The event is not an attack on the fashion industry, but an opportunity to give a voice to girls who want real and natural images of women portrayed in fashion and media. The event will be held on the eve of Fashion Week in New York City's Bryant Park and will feature the following guest panelists:
· Crystal Renn, 'Plus-Size' Supermodel & Author
· Jess Weiner, Author & Global Ambassador for the Dove Self-Esteem Fund
· Jill Herzig, Executive Editor, Glamour Magazine
· Kimberlee Salmond, Girl Scout Research Institute
This event will be an open platform discussion on self-esteem and girls. It will focus on the role we can all play in helping them define real beauty. You're invited to watch the event live on Wednesday, February 10 at 5 p.m. (CST). To watch log on to www.ustream.tv/channel/beauty-redefined.
