Happy Turn Beauty Inside Out Day!!

As some may know, today is the eleventh Turn Beauty Inside Out day. This annual event was started by the Girls Editorial Board of New Moon Girls Magazine ( in 2000. It celebrates the idea that beauty should be defined by character, not outward appearance. It’s a message that desperately needs to be heard by New Moon’s audience, girls ages eight to twelve. At the same time, New Moon maintains a delicate balance by also stating that every girl’s physical appearance is beautiful as well. Knowing that there’s nothing wrong with one’s body, coupled with the knowledge that true beauty is internal, New Moon provides a powerful, feminist-fueled foundation for thousands of girls to go and lead dynamic, vibrant lives. Take today to remember what beauty is, and that it’s not what the media claims. Remind your friends, the young women in your life, and everyone else of their beauty today- most importantly, yourself.

  1. I just wanted to say you are amazing and your words completely resonate with me! As a fellow feminist, I find it really hard to find other girls my age to fully understand the idea of feminism and the obsession of beauty has on them. I am excited to follow your blog! :)

  2. Thank you, Christina!! I'm so pleased that my pieces resonated with you, and I'm glad we both found people to relate to. :) Please continue to comment and thank you so much!
