Here is my update on the workshop: it was the perfect length, just two hours. The first hour was a large session listening to a very good speaker about self-esteem. It was very well-attended, there were over 100 girls there with their mothers, aunts, teachers and mentors.
The second half of the session was interesting - the girls were taken into another room to do a "self-esteem craft" and the mother/mentors had a group discussion about the peer pressures facing our daughters. It was VERY insightful. And the whole time, I didn't feel like I was being sold Dove product, so I would recommend attending a Dove Real Beauty Workshop with your daugther if it visits your area!
