YaleWomen Connecticut -- Curiosity & Conversations: Female Beauty

Curiosity & Conversations: Female Beauty

beau·ty (byo͞otē)  noun  a combination of qualities, such as shape, color, or form, that pleases the aesthetic senses, especially the sight.


Ten years ago, in an effort to change the conversation about female beauty, Dove launched its “Real Beauty Campaign.” 

Did the conversation change?

Join us for a conversation in which we will explore beauty: What is your definition of beauty?  How does our culture define beauty?  How does how big industry – perhaps including Unilever through its Dove “Real Beauty” campaign – shape and influence both our culture’s and our individual perceptions of beauty?  How do we feel about beauty?  Whether or not Dove’s “Real Beauty” campaign changed the conversation about female beauty, where can YaleWomen Connecticut take this conversation?
