From page to screen to college campuses across the country, the team behind the “Half the Sky” movement is further broadcasting its call to action through the Campus Ambassador Program, aimed at raising awareness of international women’s issues among young people.

All women are real women. Too often the critique of modern beauty standards devolves into a tragic us v. them: curvy v. skinny, flat v. big-chested. In our insisting that non-skinny women should be valued, we often decide that skinny women should be valued less. This is tragic, and distracts from the real problem: that women are constantly being told what to look like. Fight that war.
