Am I Beautiful?Am I Beautiful? by Chine Mbubaegbu
My rating: 4 of 5 stars



This was a very personal telling of the marginalization experienced by the author, being both a woman and a woman of color, contrasted with the Truth as presented in God's Word; that we are fearfully and wonderfully made.

Chine Mbubaegbu revitalizes the Barbie argument, citing that with worldwide sales reaching one billion, 90% of girls between the ages three and ten own a Barbie doll. Combined with the fact that a girls's lifelong body-image is fully developed by the tender age of eight, its no wonder we, as adult women, come into agreement with female objectification and resent our bodies for failing to reach impossible standards.
