INGRAINED MISOGYNY - BY KIM DANIELS
Guest written by stylist Kim Daniels.
As a woman I feel it's so important for us to support each other in every way possible. Being mindful of your fellow woman should be a natural instinct. I've certainly had my own issues with my body going through high school, specifically my breasts. I always felt very protective of myself when I would hear girls at my school talk about hating their 'C' cups and knowing I was a 'D'. At times women can feel ostracized and on their own and this needs to stop, as women we should come together and liberate each other. Icons such as Grace Jones, Rihanna and even Kim Kardashian West have put their bodies and insecurities out there for the world to see.
We need to understand that the world is ready and open for change. The sexualisation of a woman's nipples is slowly dying down and its because of public figures like Rihanna. Every single being has a body and that's all it is. Women should not be subject to scrutiny just because the world has painted an image of what our body 'means'.
When fashion came in to my life I opened myself up to my own nakedness, and I understood that women are free to look and express themselves however they want. There are too many of us who have misogyny ingrained in us and we don't even realise it! If you are having any personal issues regarding sexuality or body issues I recommend a blog called killerandasweetthing.com run by Eileen Kelly.
Dislike of, contempt for, or ingrained prejudice against women.
