    No Mean Girls - Why Women Hate Women (with Sarah Zink)

    in Women

    What does “No Mean Girls” mean to you? I’ll bet you typically think of the OTHER person – the one who’s been or is being mean to you. Yet, in this series, I want you to think about YOURSELF as the mean girl. We cannot change other people’s behaviors; if we are to change the world, we have to change our own thoughts, habits, responses, and behaviors. And let me just say it here - I, too, struggle with my inner 'mean girl'. Tune in to hear more.

  • The Diversity of Girls and Women of Color: Standards of Beauty

    in Culture

    Historically the diversity of girls and women of color has been ignored, insulted, and


    “We live in a society that does not always embrace the diversity of girls and women of color. Research has thoroughly documented how negative stereotypes, negative perceptions, and standards of beauty do not include or embrace the diversity of girls and women of color. Low values placed on girls and women of color with respect to their voices, emotional needs, abilities, and physical attributes (hair, skin color, body image, and other phenotypes) affect the psychological, emotional, physical and social well-being of girls and women of color.” (Culbreth, 2014)


    Join Dr. Culbreth and guests, Professor Celeste Atkins, Professor LaToya Lee and Dr. Julie Jung-Kim for a thought-provoking discussion on standards of beauty and how girls and women of color are treated disparately in society because of their skin color, race, hair, weight, etc.  Topics will include colorism, racism, weight, body shamming, the foundation of beautiful among other topics and suggestions for moving forward.
