In real and personal stories, these women share their personal stories of triumphs, tragedies, and life’s funny moments, while challenging the reader to look beneath the surface of how society views women, especially as they age.
Body & Soul was commissioned by Dove as a way to demonstrate that beauty has no age limit.
