A Script of Her Own

New Moon: The Magazine for Girls and Their Dreams is turning Hollywood inside out by challenging the film industry's harmful depictions of women and girls with their third annual "Turn Beauty Inside Out" campaign. As part of this year's focus on how films depict women and girls, essay contestants will rewrite movies the way they want them to be. The campaign grew out of the "25 Beautiful Girls" issue of New Moon in which girls voiced a need for a definition of beauty that fits them; beauty that is defined by the content of their character. "Beauty isn't about how you look," said one participant. "It's about how you act and how compassionate you are."
