Olympic Gold medalist Shawn Johnson is speaking out against those who judge the bodies of gymnasts and other athletes rather than judging their abilities. Ms. Johnson has personal experience of this unjust scrutiny as her body was often talked about in the press and media. Her experience is similar to other athletes and gymnasts and that is why she is teaming up with Dove to launch the #MyBeautyMySay campaign. The campaign is aimed at addressing the self-esteem issues that result from body shaming in the media.
