Dove has posted a new video looking at how women see themselves, and it really is quite moving. (I will admit I teared up at the end.) So watch the video and then look at the sketches below.
“A former forensic artist for the San Jose police department met a series of women and asked each to describe the way they look. He had no way of seeing them behind a curtain. He prompted them to detail everything: hair length, facial structure, their most prominent features. He then sketched each participant from their self-description.”
“Each woman was asked before the study to get to know one of the other participants. The forensic artist then prompted each woman to describe the other’s face. “
“At the end of the video, the artist reveals two sketches — one from the participant itself, one from their partner. The differences are remarkable.”
How do you think you see yourself? Would you be more critical than a stranger?
