Probably one of best Ads I have ever seen. Everyone, watch this short video!!!!!
More women are coming forward with their rapes and sexual assaults today than ever before.
Photographer Katrina Barker Anderson from Salt Lake City, is on two not-so-simple missions: to protest the modesty rhetoric of the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints (LDS, better known as the Mormon church), and to capture Mormon women in the nude, celebrating the human body in all forms.
A lifelong member of the LDS church herself, Barker Anderson recalls hearing stories of young girls being shamed for not dressing “modestly” enough, and after hearing similar stories over and over again, she got fed up.
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.
Fewer than 3 in 10 graduates in science, technology, engineering, and mathematics are women. And barely 1 in 10 actual engineers are women. Early in a girl’s life, the toys marketed to her are usually things that don’t encourage her to enter those fields. GoldieBlox intends to change that by teaching them while they are young that these fields can be fun — and apparently epic, by the looks of this super-genius 2-minute video. Watch and learn.
I cried when I watched this….her performance is very powerful.
I thought this was very interesting…..Its good to see how the role of women in history influenced the evolution of the female image.
In light of Halloween week and all the various costumes that portray many meanings when worn by certain people these 4 girls find a great way to underline some important issues when it comes to women and halloween. I personally loved it, and couldn’t resist not sharing it. This is poetry from the Brave New Voices Grand Slam Finals 2013 round 4 in Washington, D.C.
Oh and by the way, the ”being a monster” bit is a reference to a great Nicki Minaj lyric.
Wait for the ultimate clapping-in-agreement-because-it’s-so-amazing moment at 2:10.
I found this to be very eye-opening and concerning. What I thought was interesting was that more than 3 of my guy friends shared this link, and it gave me somewhat hope that at least these issues are seen problematic.
