Beauty Redefined Founders Challenge Cultural Beauty Ideals on Access Utah Thursday

University of Utah doctoral students and twin sisters, Lindsay and Lexie Kite, run a non-profit organization called Beauty Redefined which offers sticky notes supporters can paste on mirrors in restrooms and dressing rooms with messages like: “Your reflection does not define your worth.” Now they’re taking on Sports Illustrated, urging people to paste the sticky notes on the annual swimsuit issue. The Kite sisters say that our ideas about beauty need to be redefined.  We’ll talk with them in the first half of Access Utah on Thursday.

In the second half, we revisit a conversation with This American Life host Ira Glass. 

Tom Williams worked as a part-time UPR announcer for a few years and joined Utah Public Radio full-time in 1996. He is a proud graduate of Uintah High School in Vernal and Utah State University (B. A. in Liberal Arts and Master of Business Administration.) He grew up in a family that regularly discussed everything from opera to religion to politics. He is interested in just about everything and loves to engage people in conversation, so you could say he has found the perfect job as host “Access Utah.” He and his wife Becky, live in Logan.
