Sketch artist draws women how they describe themselves vs. how they are described by others. (Illustrations)

Update: a brilliant parody: Dove Experiment Parody: How Men See Ourselves. {Video}

We are beautiful.

This is amazing, and moving, and feels true.

From Dove:

Women are their own worst beauty critics. Only 4% of women around the world consider themselves beautiful. At Dove, we are committed to creating a world where beauty is a source of confidence, not anxiety. So, we decided to conduct a compelling social experiment that explores how women view their own beauty in contrast to what others see. Watch the whole experience at: http://dove.com/realbeautysketchesJoin the conversation at: #wearebeautiful

And don’t forget: YOU are more beautiful than you think!

Note: this is a feel-good marketing campaign via Dove soap, “Dove Real Beauty Sketches,” not art or science that owes no fealty to anything but the truth.

A top comment on reddit: “It’s not a f*cking scientific experiment.

It’s a commercial designed to get ugly middle-aged women to buy soap.”
