The “Modern Family” star is setting an example not just for her nieces, but for all of us
She’s best known for playing one of our favorite characters on television, the oh-so-relatable Alex Dunphy. But it’s what the Modern Family star does offset that makes her our WCW. From her fierce commitment to women’s and LGBTQ rights, to her fearlessness in handling bullies and negativity, Ariel is simply awesome.
Just moments ago, Ariel announced that she’s teaming up with Dove’s Self-Esteem Project. “To empower young women, you have to be that example,” she shares. Ariel wants to set an example for her two young nieces. “It’s important for me to promote body positivity to them because they go to school and kids use the word fat all the time…I show them that I’m confident and feel good about myself and that’s the best way to teach them.”
These 8 Instagram posts show why Ariel Winter is our #WCW:

We love you Ariel Winter, not just today, but every day!
