This very powerful video was posted on Youtube by Dove. Dove did a study on how women view themselves as opposed to how others see them. As part of the study each woman would pair up with another participant and get to know them. A retired forensic artist from the San Jose police department, who never met the woman, asked them questions about their looks as he sketched them. He was behind a curtain and unable to see them. He then asked the person that the subject got to know to describe the woman's looks. It's amazing to see how we perceive our looks as opposed to how others see us.
"Women are their own worst beauty critics," Dove says. "Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful ... we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see."
