The Diversity of Girls and Women of Color (Standards of Beauty)

 

We live in a society that does not always embrace the diversity of girls and women of color. Research has thoroughly documented how negative stereotypes, negative perceptions, and standards of beauty do not include or embrace the diversity of girls and women of color.” (Culbreth, 2014)

“Low values placed on the worth and “self” with respect to voices, emotional needs, abilities, and physical attributes (hair, skin color, body image, and other phenotypes) affect the psychological, emotional, physical and social well-being of girls and women of color.” (Culbreth, 2014)

Join Dr. Culbreth and guests, Professor Celeste Atkins, Professor Latoya Lee and Dr. Julie Jung-Kim for a thought-provoking discussion on standards of beauty and how girls and women of color are treated disparately in society because of their skin color, race, hair, weight, etc. Topics will include colorism, racism, weight, body shamming, the foundation of beautiful among other topics and suggestions for moving forward.
