Thoughts on thoughts and images of beautiful things

If you care about gender issues at all…

I think this essay by Jennifer Aniston in the Huffington Post is a great rebuttal to the way that women are portrayed in the media, especially celebrities. It’s definitely worth the read!

On a related note, this is a very interesting documentary about how masculinity is shaped in this country, and it runs parallel to Miss Representation, which is about the very issue that Jennifer Aniston is talking about – the portrayal of women in the media and the expectations placed on women from an early age to measure up to certain ‘beauty standards’.
