In an age where looking tanned is the new standard of beauty in most developed countries, the reality of being born with brown skin is different. Brown women have much more to fight against than their other female counterparts. They were queens in their own right but have become symbols of lost kingdoms and poverty. They have been misunderstood and mistreated. Still, they do not falter and they do not fail as they strive for better conditions and a better quality of life. They no longer cover their head with shame but rather stand proud in their beauty and sacrifice.
