An Eye-Opening Video On How The Media Dehumanizes Women
This 5 minute video by Challenging Media and Jean Kilbourne will break the bubble of anyone who believes in ‘flawless beauty’. It is an eye-opener on how the media actually objectifies women and initiates violence against women. Especially in the present scenario, where ‘thigh gap’, ‘size zero’, ‘flawless beauty’ and all other nonsensical standards are set for women, this will definitely give you a reality check. She blatantly reveals the truth saying, “Women learn from a very early age that we must spend enormous amounts of time, energy, and above all money, striving to achieve this look and feeling ashamed and guilty when we fail. And failure is inevitable, because the ideal is based on absolute flawlessness. She never has any lines or wrinkles. She certainly has no scars or blemishes. Indeed, she has no pores. And the most important aspect of this flawlessness is that it cannot be achieved. No one looks like this, including her. And this is the truth. No one looks like this. The supermodel Cindy Crawford once said, ‘I wish I looked like Cindy Crawford’. She doesn’t. She couldn’t, because this is a look that’s been created for years through airbrushing and cosmetics, but these days it’s done through the magic of computer retouching”.
