[Don't] look at me
Ongoing project on female body image, objectification, the male gaze, #metoo and #timesup.
For centuries, a woman's worth was restricted to her appearance. Even nowadays many girls and women struggle with the internalization of unrealistic expectations placed upon them by society.
The #metoo and #timesup movements show that women are collectively fed up with the objectification of the female body. Finding strength in solidarity, we collectively raised our voices. But how do we replace centuries of programming?
How do we protect our boundaries while at the same time learning to assert ourselves sexually? How do we let go of the yearning for validation via our appearance, the only validation bestowed upon us for centuries? How do we abolish the male gaze? These questions and many more will come to the surface once the first turmoil quiets down.
