We have been lucky enough on previous occasions to work with Dove on their Real Beauty campaigns so when we caught this new video from the beauty brand that works on educating women of all shapes and sizes that they are beautiful we got a sudden rush of goose pimples!
The video focuses on Fat Girls Dance, a movement, that you guessed it, shows fat girls that dancing isn’t limited to a dress size. Cathleen Meredith, set up the group to share her passion for dancing. While she recalls always knowing she was fat, she believes that the negative connotations that come from media and other people is what puts up barriers for women believing they can achieve and this video shows just how much she is doing to bring other women together and into a physical activity that they love and embrace. We love you Cathleen! Keep dancing!
They have even partnered with JUSTCURVES ™for a line of powerful slogan tees – this is surely just the first you might be hearing for Fat Girls Dance, but it wont be the last!
