Lindsay Kite, Ph.D., is co-director of the nonprofit Beauty Redefined along with her identical twin sister, Lexie Kite. She is a scholar and advocate of positive body image and body image resilience. She holds a master’s and Ph.D. in Communication from the University of Utah, specializing in the study of media representation of women and female body image. Many women today don’t like what they see when they look in the mirror. Self-objectification happens when women view themselves from an outside perspective and see only the flaws. In fact, studies show that self-objectification can even negatively affect someone’s mental and physical abilities. Lindsay Kite, a founder of the non-profit organization Beauty Redefined, shares with us why body image needs to be redefined.
