It seemed like one day I was building forts and catching lizards, and the next I was sucking in my gut, picking at my face, and navigating an inescapable shame about my body – a shame that I’ve now spent the last twenty years trying to shirk. I remember being ten years old and grieving my girlhood – that short period of time when I was allowed to exist without a preoccupation of my physical appearance constantly looming in the front of my mind – a time when my self-esteem wasn’t rooted in whether or not I was pretty enough, skinny enough, busty enough, sexy enough.

LES STEREOTYPES SUR LA BEAUTE NOIRE

Nous sommes sans cesse bombardés par des images et des tendances à suivre, et on finit par ne plus savoir où donner de la tête. Concernant le domaine de la beauté, qu'on se le dise, les femmes accordent une grande importance à leur image en société. Elles sont jugées sur leur physique contrairement aux hommes.
