Dove partners with Indian women on Twitter to co-author ‘Real Beauty Stories’ at Jaipur Literature Fest

Spread over four days, Dove partnered with Indian women on Twitter to write four unique stories around real beauty. The book called ‘Real Beauty Stories’ is a compilation of stories using real-time tweets by real women. The stories highlighted varied perspectives on beauty and questioned conventional ideas around the same. It was released on Twitter on the last day of the Jaipur Literature Fest.

On ground, a distinguished panel also fuelled the conversation on real beauty during the event. It featured eminent personalities like Dr. Shashi Tharoor, Javed Akhtar, Anuja Chauhan, Nandana Dev Sen, Shoma Chaudhury and Marie Brenner; who debated and discussed the influence of Literature vs. Cinema in shaping the beauty ideals in the country.

On the association with the Jaipur Literature Fest, Guntas Randhawa, Brand Manager - Dove, said, “Dove has always been an advocate of real beauty. And to take this idea of beauty forward in India, we need people who believe in the same and can initiate the debate. The association with Jaipur Literature Fest was only natural. The Real Beauty Stories book helped us take the conversation to over 17 million women online.”

Burzin Mehta, Group Creative Director, OgilvyOne Worldwide, the agency that thought of the idea said, “Real Beauty Stories is an attempt at challenging the narrow beauty ideal in India, which has been defined by society, cinema, literature, family and fairy tales. We wanted to give women a chance to define beauty their way. And crowdsourcing a book on beauty by real women allowed us to do that in an interesting and thought-provoking way.”
