Dove and celebrity Mandy Moore hosted a Women Who Should Be Famous event at the Carlu in Toronto on June 26, 2012.

They introduced an audience of women and young girls to some remarkable female role models: women who should be famous.

A positive role model can make a world of difference by helping a girl develop a positive relationship with beauty and encourage her to achieve her full potential.  Dove is dedicated to send that positive image to women and girls about real beauty and self-esteem – a cause that I’m proud to support.

Here are the four women who were featured and spoke at the event:

Severn Cullis-Suzuki, activist

Toni Blackman, freestyle artist

Fahima Osman, surgeon

Arlene Blum, mountaineer and chemist

Actress and singer Moore introduced the women and shared their remarkable stories while Dove Canada’s VP Sharon MacLeod hosted the event, which was live-streamed on Dove’s Facebook page.

Here are some photos of the event, which was truly inspirational and clearly left an amazing impression on the young girls in the audience.
