Girls Self Esteem Project by Dove. Ratify the Equal Rights Amendment

Women need Ratification of the Equal Rights Amendment for so many reasons, including the impossible stereotypes that girls grow up hearing in Modern Society.

Stereotypes that are made so much worse by the advent of the "Selfie."

As a person with a Bachelor's Degree in Sociology, I can tell you that Female Stereotypes were not invented by the iPhone, the Smart Phone or the "selfish-Selfies," but it has amplified the notion of what beauty looks like & our sense of ourselves as individuals, based on what we see in the mirror & how much we define ourselves based on the opinions of others.

These stereotypes go all the way back to the Teeny-Bop magazines of the 60s & 70s like "Self" "Seventeen" & "Tiger Beat."

This is part of the decades-long Objectification of Women.

We see this Beauty Pageants like Miss America, Miss World, Miss Universe & the Victoria Secret Fashion Show.

It has caused the rise in Plastic Surgery:
