A business or some form of movement that portrays teenagers in a realistic way; somewhat like Dove, except for teenagers.
So many clothing lines or beauty businesses set such unbelievable standards that is almost inhumanely possible to achieve. I have witnessed and personally felt the affect it has on people, specifically teenage girls. Companies like Hollister or Victoria Secrets focus so much on that perfect image society has created for women, and this "perfect image" is everywhere you look now. Girls cannot escape this image society has created for them. So what if a movement or company was started that solely focuses on portraying real girls. The clothing line obviously has to be in style, but the models they use can be regular girls off the street. No photoshop would be used, and girls of all body shapes can participate. It would encourage confidence and modesty (which you don't find in a lot of clothing lines these days). We can inspire girls to be confident, we can teach them that the image society imposes on us is not right, and encourage them to take a stand. Because no girl should feel like she is anything less than perfect because the images she see's on TV.
Im a 17 year old girl myself, but I am passionate about this topic, and will do everything in my power to make a change. If anyone has advice or guidance to share with me, I would be thrilled to listen to what you have to say.
