Models Send Positive Message To Women

Posted: Updated:
Many people say society puts an unrealistic burden on women. It's not uncommon to hear someone say, "She's too thin," or "She could lose a little weight." But a group of Midwestern women are sharing and empowering message.

A group of pin-up models is 'stepping back in time' to make a statement.

"We're all different. And we all look different. And we come from different walks of life. But we have this common interest of pinup and just women being beautiful and strong and independent," says Amy Hendrickson of the Midwest Moxie Dolls.

The women dress in vintage couture and pose for pictures influenced by the WWII pinup era.  But it's about more than taking pictures. Their message is simple.

"You are awesome the way you are and you don't have to feel bad about it," says Farren Gunderson of the Midwest Moxie Dolls.

The models range in sizes from 0 to 20. But they say size doesn't matter.

"I joined because I wanted to show women that if you're not a size two or four or anything remotely tiny that you can still be beautiful and sexy and love who you are and just have fun doing it," says Hendrickson.

Nikki Berreth has been a pin-up model since 2011. She says she started the group to show other women they can be beautiful in their own skin.

"Embrace who you are, what you are. And love yourself. Otherwise, how's anyone else going to love you?" says Nikki Berreth of the Midwest Moxie Dolls.

The group hopes empower women to feel secure about themselves and pursue their dreams, and they're having a little fun in the process.
