A Body Warrior to Meet: Lindsey

What I love about myself:  My love of being a parent and ‘teacher’ to my children

My biggest challenge in accepting my body and beauty: practicing and believing in the philosophy that there are certain things you cannot change

My biggest support in learning to appreciate myself: believe it or not, my 3 ½ year old son sees things in me that I don’t and is always pointing out positives. He loves to learn and makes me appreciate my role as his teacher due to his eagerness!

Beauty is:  Someone’s inside ability to find what positive attribute she wants to share with the world and make it shine through to the outside 

Why I am strong:  Because there are so many others around us that need positive examples set for them. I consider myself to be ‘strong’ in reference to my character. I have to stand for what I believe in.   

Why I am beautiful: I am beautiful because I truly enjoy sharing my knowledge and experiences with others I love. 

What women must know:  All women must know that it is important to be passionate about certain things and to be willing to stand strong for what you believe in. In today’s society there are so many influences changing what women think and want to do, and that makes it even more challenging to stick your ground.  Fortunately there is and has been a rise of women leaders and the more we can be sincere to who we really are and who we want to be, the better off we will be.

    Love Lidsey’s comment on how influential her son is to her growth as a person and a woman..I share the same sentiments as Lindsey is my daughter and I have learned so much from her. Challenges for women are never ending, but it certaily helps when we are appreciated and understood by others for who and what we are. Fortifies and nurtures our soul and encourages us to continue our quest for self awareness and self worth…

What does it mean to be beautiful in America? For years, pop culture has insisted that beautiful women are tall, thin, and blonde. So what do you do if your mirror reflects olive skin, raven hair, and a short build? Hijas Americanas: Beauty, Body Image, and Growing Up Latina offers a provocative account of the struggles and triumphs of Latina forced to reconcile these conflicting realities. Rosie Molinary combines her own experience with the voices of hundreds of Latinas who grew up in the US navigating issues of gender, image, and sexuality. This empathetic ethnography exemplifies the ways in which our experiences are both profoundly individualistic and comfortingly universal.
