Mankato, Minn. – Dove “Real Women” campaign model Stacy Nadeau will speak on “Embracing Real Beauty” in the Minnesota State University, Mankato Centennial Student Union Ballroom at 7 p.m. on Wednesday, Oct. 17, 2012 in a talk that is free and open to the general public.

Dove’s “Real Women” campaign began in 2005 with a billboard in New York’s Times Square that consisted of six full-figured models who wore only a bra and underwear. The mission of the Dove campaign was to broaden the stereotypical idea of beauty.

Nadeau has continued the mission by attending events to help men and women find new ways to change the ideas and messages they receive every day about beauty. Nadeau has become a spokeswoman for healthy body image, and she has appeared on the Today Show, CNN, Ellen, Dr. Phil, Tyra and Opra.
