Wednesday, October 31, 2018. New York City – Society’s standards make us think that we are not beautiful. They say we must be thin, we must be tall, we must be shaved, we must compare ourselves with other people. Society tell women they must wear makeup to be beautiful. THESE ARE ALL LIES. We do not have to be thin, we do not have to be tall, we do not have to shave our bodies, we do not have to compare ourselves with other people. Women do not have to wear makeup. We are enough as we are! We are beautiful as we are!
