"Let's celebrate the women girls see and interact with everyday who set a positive example."-Mandy Moore...Interesting blog post

Check out this article on the Huffington Post site. It's about positive role models and Dove's Movement for Self-Esteem. They recently reported that 60% of girls will avoid raising their hand in class and other activities when they feel bad about their looks. Mandy Moore discusses how this is problematic and how celebrity does not always mean that they are a role model. She talks about how the people we see every day should be our role models. I definitely agree with her. What do you guys think about putting celebrities on a pedestal? Do you ever have issues with what you see in the media? I know I can sometimes feel bad about myself because so many people idolize famous people. How can we overcome these feelings? I think that Dove has a great campaign with positive messages.
