Female Emancipation

“For one thing, the constant valorization of beauty carries with it the implication that women’s bodies are always fair game for assessment, as it empowers voyeurs to evaluate a woman’s worth as a person based on whether or not her appearance conforms to prescribed ideals. As long as beauty remains the ultimate virtue to which women should aspire — and as such remains the main source of a woman’s power in the world — it will be the easiest means by which to tear a woman down.”

“Be proud of yourself as a woman. The biggest message is owning your imperfections and all the things that make you interesting because I refuse to allow someone to put me in anyone’s box.” – Beyonce
