Androgynous model Rain Dove shares her story for Dove’s new #MyBeautyMySay campaign.

The gender non-conforming model opens up about the struggles and triumphs of rocking an androgynous look.

You don’t get to tell me how I need to look.”

According to Dove, 85% of women 79% of girls with low body-esteem are more likely to stop doing the things they love, including opting out of sports activities, if they don’t feel good about the way they look.

In her campaign video, Rain recalls how an agent mis-cast her thinking she’s a man:

I went to this casting call after losing a bet and they cast me as a male by accident. Two choices: I can say, one, ‘I’m sorry, there’s been a huge mistake, I’m a woman and I’m really sorry for wasting your time. Or I could own it.”

I loved the fact that I was different. I loved that I was unique. I may not be the conventional girl, but that doesn’t mean I’m not a pretty girl, or that any girl’s not a pretty girl.”

Dove’s film hopes to change a recent finding that half of women have not felt like they could stand up for their opinions because of insecurities about their appearance.
