Friday Featured Flickr Group: REVOLUTION OF REAL WOMEN

Continuing the Women's History Month theme, I wanted to share this Flickr group today. Well really it's more than just a Flickr group. It's a movement:

REVOLUTION OF REAL WOMEN, LLC ™ is a global movement advocating the empowerment of females in reclaiming their freedom of individuality, self-esteem and unique beauty. Where silent compliance once resided must now exist a commanding voice of revolt!

Ever felt like you weren't thin enough, pretty enough, athletic, tall, short, normal, curvy, sexy, smart, wealthy, successful or PERFECT enough? RRW™ serves as an all-seeing eye and a leader in holding media, corporations, and the fashion and entertainment industries accountable for their influences on women. Our REAL Allies Network™ dedicates itself to providing vital information and resources, and serves to speak for the silenced voices of REAL WOMEN™ of every generation, regardless of weight, race, nationality, age, sexual orientation or religion.

We must declare our independence from the controlling forces of big media and corporations. As long as we're being brainwashed into believing that curves should be feared or that wrinkles equate to age without beauty, we will continue to suffer from a distorted sense of self. Addictions, depression, anxiety, eating disorders, perfectionism and self-injury are only a few of the many ways our inner-turmoil is surfacing. We can't afford to wait any longer.

REVOLUTION OF REAL WOMEN™ calls for the complete overhaul of society's unrealistic and detrimental standards placed upon women. The only kind of "perfection" that exists is that which innately resides within each one of us.

How have you been affected?

What you'll find at this group is a set of pictures of all kinds of women, young and old, from all over the world, just being themselves, as well as a forum for thought-provoking discussions about women and the media.
