'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.

I'm kind of losing the point of this photo essay. Yes women come in all shapes and sizes. But beauty is ultimately about your attitude and heart so in the end what is the point of showing what's underneath.

I would say that is the point: to become so familiar with different body types, to see them as much as we see the so called "ideal" body type and therefore not think so much of it that we ultimately do shift our focus away from bodies. To ignore the fact that most of these women are highly underrepresented is to be okay with the fact that the hegemony of western society is that "ideal figure" :)

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