I found this video on facebook as well, and it really resonated with me. I think you should all take a look at this.
Here’s the original page for the video if you don’t want to watch it on youtube: http://www.upworthy.com/2-people-described-the-same-person-to-a-forensic-artist-and-this-is-what-happene
In light of thanksgiving I thought this was a very interesting article that focused on why such messages are wrong and how they influence people, especially women.
I thought this was very interesting, especially since it was made into such a big deal at my middle school. A lot of girls were getting in trouble for wearing leggings the “inappropriate” way.
I went to see Catching Fire this weekend; it was awesome! And given discussion last week, I thought this video was both interesting and relevant. Check it out! I hope she does this process for the Catching Fire movie too!
This is great kinda long but totally worth it
Thursday afternoon my mom and I visited the Art Museum, and it was actually pretty fun! I told my mom that we needs to look at art that had to do with women, so we pretty much skipped everything else.. except for some French art.. we’re really into French stuff! Overall, most of the art work that had to with women included that topless! Seemed like men enjoyed painting topless women! If the women were not topless, they were very tastefully painted with jewels, and very well dressed. There was this one painting that my mom and I found kind of funny, it was of this man and women who were courting and she seemed so disinterested, and it was just funny. I think it was a good trip, and the lunch we had there was pretty good!
Hey guys! So I wasn’t able to find the segment from Good Morning America; however, I did find this article that I found to be really interesting. It explains how women in war has changed throughout the years and what it is today.
This week on Friday I visited the Saint Louis Art Museum with a couple friends of mine! The first thing that I noticed while exploring was that nudity was/is a huge theme for art involving human bodies. However, I did not notice too much of a discrepancy between the nudity of male and female bodies. There was a nearly equal amount which I will admit was much to my surprise. One theme I did notice though was the difference between why men and women were typically depicted in portraits or busts. For the women it was all about whose wife or mistress they had been, often followed by a description of their beauty. For the men it was about their accomplishments and what they had achieved in life. The Gorilla Girls were also on my mind as I checked the artists’ names and found a sharp discrepancy between male and female artists. I can only recall one or two female names definitively.
I stumbled across this on Tumblr and found it quite funny.
