    Natalie commented on the post, Beauty Isn't a Size

    Hello jayda thank you for commenting on me and my groups project post. To answer your first question yes I do think the companies only have skinny models because they believe everyone wants to see “beautiful” skinny or as most people say more appealing people. To answer your second question I think that their sells would go up because if more…Read More

    Dear Victoria’s Secrets CEO Lex Wexner:

     

    Have you ever wondered how diverse your company would be if you allowed there to be different races and plus size models? We chose to write to you

    • Hello everyone.

      My name is Jayda and I am a student at Fremont High School here in Oakland. I just read your project blog post and I have some feedback.
      One thing I liked about what you wrote was about the different outlook of women and even men.

      Something I have a question about is do you think the companies who only have skinny models do it because they think it sells more? Another question I have is if, they used plus size do you think the sells would go down or up? Why or why not?

      Thank you for sharing your project!

      • Hello jayda thank you for commenting on me and my groups project post. To answer your first question yes I do think the companies only have skinny models because they believe everyone wants to see “beautiful” skinny or as most people say more appealing people. To answer your second question I think that their sells would go up because if more unique women see their body types are being shown in society they will want to go shop at the places and the companies will really notice the change in money for their company. Thank you again for commenting on our post we would love to hear more from you. Feel free to contact us on youth voices if you ever need any comments

    • Hello everyone.

      My name is Ingri Mendoza and I am a student at Fremont High School here in Oakland. I just read your project blog post and I have some feedback.
      One thing I liked about what you wrote was that you guys said that companies should have different identities and not just one. I love the topic you are talking about because many people agree that only one specific identity us portrayed in social media and companies. But they should have other identities so they can be more diverse and customs will be happy. Something I have a question about is do you guys personally feel that you are oppressed by these big companies based on your looks?
      Thank you for sharing your project!

    • Hello everyone.

      My name is Kamron and I am a student at Fremont High School here in Oakland. I just read your project blog post and I have some feedback.
      One thing I liked about what you wrote was how you explain beauty isn’t just one size or way. I also like how yall talked about the different body types and how there is beauty in different ways.

      Something I have a question about is do you think skinny people get more credit for beauty?

      Thank you for sharing your project!

    • Hi, this article of yours is something that should be out there viral on social media lol I also agree that fashion industries should be more diverse and add plus sizes instead of excluding women who aren’t perfect like the models who are promoting small sizes.

    • I am truly amazed of how your writing is clear and I can understand what you are trying to say. I can say that I agree to what is said. THis is truly inspiring and it should be all over the place but it should NOT MATTER HOW SOMEONE LOOKS!!

    • Now I understand and i agree and its clear yes models should be different sizes and race

    • Hello there,
      This article has been really fascinating. I would have never thought about the diversity that was lacking with some clothe industries, especially Victoria Secret. My question for you is, why is this topic important for you guys? I imagine that “society’s beauty” is also found in usage of makeup, styles of clothes, and body size.

    • Hello My name is Mary and I’m in 10th grade at Unity High School
      I liked the way you targeted one of the biggest companies in the beauty industry and the way you helped the realization of how the “ideal type” is not great. My question is only about the the hashtag. How is the hashtag going to help people see that their body and race is beautiful and accepted the way they are?

    • your article was interesting I agree with you the fact that models should be all different sizes not just very skinny people.

    • My name is Naydelin Sanchez and I’m a tenth grader at Oakland Unity High. I really enjoy the fact that you talked about this important issue in our society today. I want to know if there is any personal stories that you have personally had to face with body image?

    • Hey, my name is Monica I like the way yall express towards this topic sadly not many people think this way no more. I believe sizes don’t matter nobody is perfect and everybody is beautiful in their own ways.

    • Hello everyone my name is Valeria Fornes, I am happy to see more body positivity being spread around since it’s a very important issue in today’s society.
