Dove’s Campaign

noticed nice blog from blogpourri about Woman’s Worth. interesting to note Dove pro-age campaign.

response to this ad.. pro-family and women’s groups are urging a boycott of Dove products for “contributing to the sexualization of women as a commercial tool, as well as exposing children to adult nudity.” and “media analysts have accused the company of pandering to women in an attempt to sell products”.

and can you believe this ad is banned because of nudity ..;~) but Victoria secret model is still OK..!!

Dove have history of making innovative ads.. “Other ads that have created media buzz for the company have included the “True Colors” ad that featured little girls worried about their appearances and a series of ads featuring large women, older women and women with perceived flaws that asked viewers to vote on their level of attractiveness.”

whatz more Interesting is that– according to Dove’s global survey, only 2% of the 3000 women surveyed believe they are beautiful. 90% describe themselves as ‘attractive’ while 29% described themselves as ‘average’. 63% of respondents felt that women were expected to be more attractive than women of their mothers’ generation. Now Dove is sponsoring programs to boost the self-esteem among women.

I wonder why women feel pressure to look good than mother’s generation.!? and I hope (like always)man are not blamed for this too…! and what this means in content of Indian women..!!

Women (Un)Defined…

Women, a friend, a mother,..
A metamorphosis, one after another
and now i wonder
are you but a mere gender?

filled with pleasure
you are the greatest treasure
you are the reason battles were fought
O! thy beauty many have sought

with modest, selfless and kind,
gentle in ego to see
much divine and gorgeous a person you are.
When I tell you… you disagree.

woman you can see in the mirror,
how you lights a path for those who aspire
to be more than just daily circumstance,
woman,.. do I respect and admire.

oh! women
I sit here waiting all day
that someday you may,
come and make me yours
and to you always open are my doors…..

Women.. with Strength or Strong!?

strong woman isn’t afraid of anything,
Looking forward to challenges each day will bring,
Women of strength show courage in the midst of fear,
Knowing triumph through faith because the Lord is near.

strong woman works out every day,
Pride in her appearance she portrays,
But a woman of strength kneels to pray,
Keeping her soul in shape, God leading the way.

strong woman relies on the physical attributes making her tough,
In her search for power and money she will never have enough,
woman of strength understands that it’s not about material stuff,
Knowing that before becoming a diamond first she’ll be in the rough,

Strong women won’t let anyone get the best of them,
So skilled in defense even if they have to pretend,
Yet a woman of strength gives her best to everyone,
Being anointed with divine blood from the only begotten Son.

strong woman is easily impatient back and forth she will begin to pace,
Counting on her holier than thou attitude instead of depending on faith,
woman of strength is assured trust in God will always carry her through,
And at the Creator’s appointed time she’ll receive all that is justly due.

strong woman sometimes disguises her feelings shadowed by clouds,
Unhinged when challenged on her policy becoming boisterous and loud,
woman of strength concerns herself not with judgment from others,
And will not let business interfere with commitments as a wife and mother.

strong woman walks head first with no doubt in her mind,
Again, no matter what, she’ll not make this mistake a second time,
But a woman of strength knows God will catch her when she falls,
So when a situation arises again, she’s not afraid to answer the call.

strong woman makes mistakes and avoids the same for tomorrow,
Refusing to take time looking back with reverence and Godly sorrow,
woman of strength realizes life’s mistakes no matter how slim,
While thanking God for the blessings as she capitalizes on them.

strong woman has faith that for the journey she’ll have enough,
No matter how uneven the terrain or roads being rocky and rough,
woman of strength knows it’s in the journey she will become strong,
And the love of God is forever with her, no matter how difficult or long.

strong woman wears the look of confidence on her face,
Always doing whatever it takes to finish, seeking only first place,
woman of strength competes with an emotional sense of grace,
Understanding it’s more important to run a Holy Spirit filled race.

strong woman when uninformed thinks that she is being mistreated,
In the end her physical attributes fail causing doubt to become seeded,
woman of strength will compromise as a little give and take is needed,
Why? Because a lesson not learned the first time is soon to be repeated.

Women, you can be strong or you can act with strength. so what your choice??
Man, which women interests you??
