Beauty – : “Not all girls are fooled by the cult of vacuous celebrity.”

No. We actually have some women with backbone and substance and some of our best examples are our sports women. Australian sports women are strong, grounded, funny, down to earth and hugely competent. They have good coping mechanisms and don’t mess about when it comes to getting things done. They move things on if they get it wrong and don’t dwell on it and a lot of them look really nice as well. They are fit and healthy looking. I think if we are looking to promote women we need to look at provide inspiration from women with depth and substance and fail to provide rewards for dependent, weak, gaga, twittering nits. We need to get our heads straight, our shoulders back and our chests out.
