Miss Representation

“The most common way people give up power, is by thinking they don’t have any” – Alice Walker

I just feel as thought this is truly an important matter, how Women are portrayed in the media. One major thing that struck my brain in my first week of College at the University Of Michigan, was to understand that indeed the media is a fun house mirror …. how and what we view is completely controlled by gate keepers … these people who predetermine what is and is not beautiful / hot/ sexy/ appealing/ etc.
We see things in the media each and everyday, that influences the way you think … most of the time you don’t even realize how you are being influenced … !

Cliteraly

Sophia Wallace, dayum YOU GO GIRL !!

@ the university of Michigan , I was a gender and health minor of the Women Studies Department. People question the credibility of a women studies minor, let alone the existence of an entire department dedicated to the topic… but the commonality of women’s rights across the board have not been around long.

just because there are women in high places, doesn’t mean that women have equal rights. we have innately been denounced as a inferior human being …

fighting that glass ceiling everyday, we have that much more to prove

I’m all about this girl sophia wallace taking a stand and getting people Cliterate … we hear about dick and balls and having a penis equating to super powers ( outside of just being able to pee in a bottle on a road trip).

weirdly enough, before reading into the Cliteracy project , i did not know that the clit was just discovered in 1998 … !

I think there is much more to a womens body than the media showcases … she mentions how women are over sexualized in the media, this is something i don’t believe will ever go away.

she seems to think it would be okay to use the words pussy, cunt, twat in a more positive and productive way – currently noting that many are used in regards to shame of having female genitals. I’m a little taken back by this , as i do believe that these words should not be used in a derogatory manner – i also no not think it is necessary to call someone a dick, ball sucker or anything of those lines. people should not be called names in relation to genitalia. end of story. its just gross. definitely agree with her that we do need more language to discuss the female body in a positive repertoire …
