Changing the Stereotypes of Black Women

What is the societal stereotype of a beautiful woman? How many women really fit that image? Stereotypes are a normal way humans organize the world in our minds, so what harm can a simple stereotype about beauty do to the vast majority of people who do not fit that image?
And what about people who get stereotyped as "not smart" or "fat?” What about a whole ethnic group that gets stereotyped?
The website Who's That Lady Entertainment aims to "document achievements of women that don't normally get a chance to shine on a regular basis." Read this interview with Who's That Lady Entertainment Creative Director Belinda Trotter-James and reflect on what stereotypes are in your life and how we all can work to go beyond the stereotypes and truly "see" one another.
