MORE THAN A BODY

by Kite, LexieKite, Lindsay

From identical twin sisters and body image experts Lindsay and Lexie Kite comes an action plan to help women overcome the negative effects of manufactured beauty standards.

We are Lexie and Lindsay Kite, PhD, identical twins and co-directors of Beauty Redefined, a nonprofit working to help girls and women improve their body image and self-worth as they wade through harmful cultural ideals. We want to tell you about our (very twin-like) path from self-conscious young women to body image scholars and activists. Our story is in Lindsay’s words, but it belongs to both of us. This is our story, and the transformation we have experienced can be part of your story, too. 

Activists, influencers, and brands often advocate for “body positivity,” meaning beauty at any size and color. But the Kite sisters want women to see their bodies as “instruments, not ornaments,” and through their research have developed an action plan to show us how—when consuming media, exercising, practicing self-reflection and self-compassion, and finding purpose in life. 

You can see the full extent of their work on their website, beautyredefined.org, and by watching Lindsay’s TEDx talk. The Kite sisters have garnered local media in Utah and are frequent speakers at conferences, universities, Girl Scout events, and regional congregations of the LDS church. Their background as academics sets them apart from others who write about similar topics.
