Real Women Have Faults

This one line, Real women have faults popped into my head when I finished reading this article where a mother dressed her little girl as iconic women.

The last line in this article says
"Set aside the Barbie dolls and the Disney Princesses for just a moment and let's show our girls the real women they can be"

I read this line and I was like yes, we should all follow this. And then I looked at the pic of Coco Chanel with a cigarette on her lips.

The next thought in my head was that real women have faults.  They are not and can never be the embodiment of perfection that a barbie has come to become. And that in my mind is the only reason we don't appreciate real women as much as we should. They have faults.

Can we just forget the faults and concentrate on the great things about the women in our lives instead???

Oh and as a side note, here is a really interesting article on Barbie and real life proportions. Do read it!
