"It is my dream, then, to create this website where women of all ages, shapes, sizes and nationalities can share images of their bodies so it will no longer be secret. So we can finally see what women really look like sans airbrushes and plastic surgery.

What if the next generation grows up knowing how normal our bodies are? How truly awesome would that be?"
