'Underneath We Are Women' is an amazing photo book which fights the stereotypes of women's beauty.

Created by Australian photographer Amy D Herrman, the book's main goal is 'to educate thousands' by featuring ‘100 women, 100 bodies, 100 stories’ and showing their endless diversity. In the book, there are no judgments and no opinions of others - just honest photography. If you like this idea, help Amy raise money through Kickstarter so she could print 400 copies of the book!

Physical defects are nothing to be ashamed of, but stigma and bias shame us all. And this woman looks wonderful in spite of it all.

I didn't even notice she had a missing forearm until my second or third look. I was like, why is she remarkable? She's gorgeous. Which of course is the entire point of this entire link. Well done. I shall now slap myself in the face.

You never know how strong you are, until being strong is the only choice you have. I have volunteered in a cancer hospital for 4 years now.... I see strength and courage all around. God bless those who fight the battle. <3

When it comes to staying young, a mind lift beats a face lift EVERY time. She is the ultimate of age with grace.

Guess what? Women get hair in new places during puberty, just like men. It's not nasty, it's natural

All bodies are beautiful, YOU are the sterotype for shaming her for enjoying the gym, buying fit, muscular, whatever.

No she is not, she could be the same as Caster Semenya the Olympics athlete from SA. woman who have extra male chromosomes. So who now is stereotyping?

Truly this is one of the most beautiful and inspirational threads I have ever seen. I truly appreciate how the beauty each picture captures and the personality of each individual. I know as a curvy lass mysdlf it would take alot of gusto for some of these gorgeoys ladies to show their real selves. Thank you for celebrating women as a whole. Just beautiful

Wow. The negative crap on here is ridiculous. And u NEGATUVE REAPONDANTS are straight up assholes. Media reflects stick then. Fine. No worries. So guess what social media.... which is exactly that.... social... we get to put out there something that we feel is important. Don't be double he bags and comment ugly about these woman. That's just rude. U don't like the post then don't look at it. I wonder if u say anything rude about Victoria Secret or sports illustrated or... how boutique shut the he'll up!

I'm proud to see us women are proud in their own shapes, sizes, ethnicity! Truly a magnificent spiritual beauty from within!

Every one of you are beautiful! It shouldn't matter body type, hair color, skin color, or anything. You're all beautiful in your own way. That's what makes this world awesome. Everyone is different and you three are just stunning! =)

Sorry but i have to say the middle one is actually showing that shr fits the stereotypes not outcomed them. She is a gym-head

and what about that makes her not a unique and beautiful woman? Thin, fat, fit, unfit.... cis, non-binary, etc.... limbed or amputee, normally formed or different... respect everyone and let them love who they are!
