#FeelingBeautiful: Social Media and Women's Egos

#FeelingBeautiful: We all know that the amount of time we spend on social platforms has a direct effect on how we see ourselves as women. The pressure to post images showing off thin thighs, perfect skin and sexy poses is not just on teenagers. Recent studies have linked plastic surgery requests and eating disorders to social media habits. But, thankfully, there is another side that has emerged — a side of positivity that includes pop performers like John Legend and Meghan Trainor; ad campaigns like "Like a Girl" and grass-root efforts like the #NoFilterProject. How can we collectively use social media to help build confidence among women and girls? What can we do as individuals? How do we feel about brands who are jumping on this bandwagon? Do their messages work?
The conversation will include author Katherine Schwarzenegger, television host Amanda de Cadenet and blogger Gabi Gregg. Led by InStyle's Angela Matusik.
