Shawn Johnson & Dove Partner Up For 'MyBeautyMySay' Campaign

Shawn Johnson steps out for the Dove #mybeautymysay billboard launch event in Times Square on Wednesday morning (July 27) in New York City.

The 24-year-old athlete teamed up with the beauty brand for the campaign, which aims to stop sexist media commentary of female athletes.

“I feel like our world today is pushing beauty over athleticism for young girls,” Shawn recently shared. “I want to be an advocate to change that.”

She added, “I don’t care if people critique me. I want you to, but I want you to critique my performance. If you say my backflip wasn’t high enough, I can either [disagree] and say it was, or I can go home and work on it. If I do a backflip and you say, ‘Well, you just aren’t pretty enough,’ there’s nothing I can do with that. It’s a helpless feeling.”

Shawn is also pictured at SiriusXM just the day before.
