It makes me really sad to see Dove getting all of this good Press for another one of their bullshit "real beauty" Ads. Dove is a terrible company. I've been in Tamil Nadu for months researching the impact of fairness bias on children here, and Unilever (Dove's parent company) works harder than any other company to solidify the notion that discrimination based on color is okay. Ads suggest that it is okay for women to persecuted for having brown skin in personal and professional life and places the owners on women, not society to change.
While Unilever tries to sell messages of self acceptance in the USA, it does the exact opposite in many other parts of the world. If you can, avoid their products.
So just in case any of you were thinking of giving this company a pat on the back, just remember.......
