Recently I was delighted to learn of the excellent work that twin sisters Lindsay Kite and Lexie Kite are doing through their nonprofit, Beauty Redefined.
From their website:
“Beauty Redefined is all about rethinking our ideas of “beautiful” and “healthy” that we’ve likely learned from for-profit media that thrives off female insecurity. Girls and women who feel OK about their bodies – meaning they aren’t “disgusted” with them like more than half of women today* - take better care of themselves. With obesity and eating disorders both at epidemic levels, this point is crucial!”
Lexie and Lindsay are working on their Ph.D.s in communication, studying the representation of women in popular media. Their website is fascinating–exploring everything from Photoshop to Victoria’s Secret to racism in the pages of Vanity Fair to how “fat” isn’t really the point. And their passion for redefining beauty comes from personal experience.
Check out their website! You won’t be disappointed.
Have a great weekend!
