Media constantly dismembers, packages and displays women’s bodies for the purpose of selling anything from cars and beer to weapons.
Maybe if all women’s bodies were displayed, if all shapes and sizes and skin colors and abled and disabled bodies were used, and if all this objectification was done while our sexuality was also being celebrated, it might feel empowering but since women are still shamed for their sexuality, since gender-based violence is still blamed on us rather than on the perpetrators, it only furthers the oppression and the aggression we face.
“Turning a human being into a thing, an object, is almost always the first step toward justifying violence against that person” Jean Kilbourne.
According to the UN 1 in 3 women around the world experiences violence in their lifetime.
To see our bodies used as a commodity, our worth defined by how ornamental we are, our reproductive rights still withheld from us, our identities erased and our voices silenced by tone policing makes me angry.
We are more than our physical attractiveness.
Our beauty does not render us one dimensional.
If we show emotions it does not make us weak.
If we enjoy sex it does not make us deserving of any form of judgement or violence.
What if femininity found it’s way through every crack and pothole, alongside your pavements, your roads, your walls...what if you literally had to step over us to go about your day?
