Dove's new film "Onslaught" has one powerful message: The Beauty Industry is harmful to girls. Parents need to intervene and educate their daughters about the toxic messages the images put forth; poisons that infect the mind like a drug. Kudos to Dove for opening dialogue about the beauty industry yet again.

I would like to see a an additional, complimentary film created replacing the little girl's face with a little boy's face. I believe it would be just as powerful and send an appropriate message that the beauty industry affects developing boys' minds in a very real and dangerous manner.

We need to talk to our girls and we need to talk to our boys about why the onslaught of images of women by the beauty industry are harmful to women.
