Glamour partnered with L'Oréal Paris to commission a Harris Poll of 2,000 women in all 50 states to reveal how women feel about themselves, their career, and their future in 2017.
So what did the findings reveal? "Inner Conflicts". Women in 2017 are more optimistic about their life and future, yet 60% use negative words Like "Stressed," "Insecure," and "Lonely" to describe themselves, Glamour states.
Anne Marie Nelson-Bogle, senior vice president for marketing with L'Oréal Paris USA, says, "The launch of '50 States of Women' exemplifies our belief that every woman is worth it and has a story to tell. This study gives us a deeper understanding of what makes women in America feel beautiful, confident, and optimistic about the future—and shows us what areas we need to focus on as we empower women everywhere to embrace their intrinsic worth and inner beauty."
The "50 States of Women" survey appears in Glamour's September issue, on national newsstands August 8. Click here to read the full story on Glamour.com.
