Someday Melissa is participating in the Keep It Real Challenge, to be held June 27-29th, 2012 and sponsored by Spark, Miss Representation, LoveSocial, I Am That Girl, and Endangered Bodies. Inspired by a teen’s petition for Seventeen magazine to feature one unretouched photo a month, this social media event will help to spread a message that sexualized, objectified and unrealistic images of girls and women are not what we want. We want to keep it real.
What does it mean to keep it real?
- Keeping it real means represent actual authenticity & diversity.
- Keeping it real means appreciating women’s actual bodies, not just digitized, CGI’d versions of them.
- Keeping it real means not only knowing that what the media is selling us is harmful, but doing something about it. (Source: Spark Summit)
