Five years old. That’s the age at which girls learn what’s real and make-believe, or do a somersault for the first time.

As Early As Five shed light on this staggering and heart-wrenching insight to compel people to take action on behalf of The CROWN Act – a law co-founded by Dove to make natural hair discrimination illegal in schools and workplaces across the US. Signing The CROWN Act petition was the measure of success for this campaign.
