A Positive Image for Women?

March 11th, 2008 12:47 PM

Well, look no further than John McCain's daughter, Meghan. Meghan runs a delightful blog about her campaigning experiences called McCainBlogette. I have enjoyed her excellent pictures, video, and writings throughout the primaries.

Meghan is a beautiful woman, so imagine my surprise when I read her most recent post where she discusses people who criticize her weight and body shape!:

It recently reached a ridiculous level when someone handed me a business card for a plastic surgeon and suggested I needed liposuction. I am proud of my curves and have always loved my fuller figure, as should every woman who is not a size "0". I want to be a positive role model for my little sister and all of the other young women who read my blog and help perpetuate a more positive image for women, regardless of their body size. I feel empowered to tell everyone that it's important to maintain a healthy weight that works for them - not everyone is going to be model thin, nor should they expect to be. To every young girl reading this blog, it is inner beauty and happiness that makes a person beautiful, not a number on a scale.

You go girl!
