Everyone has heard the voice of his or her own “inner critic” taking pot shots at us during times of low self-confidence. For many girls and women that inner critic often mutters (or shouts) about how we look. A running internal monologue of body-shaming can become so ubiquitous we don’t even know we’re doing it. And yet, without awareness of this self-abuse, how can women truly gain the confidence we need to reach our full potential? How can we stop seeing other women as competitors in a universal beauty competition and start seeing them as friends, mentors, and sister in a support network? Annie talks with Naomi Katz, teacher and author of Beautiful: Being an Empowered Young Woman, about Beautiful Project, her initiative to empower women to take action into our own hands, to understand that we are the builders of our culture and that we drive the changes that we wish to see, beginning with ourselves and echoing into our communities.
