Brief/Title : Feminism - Beauty Ideal
Rationale : Causes of eating disorder are numerous; it’s young women who mainly fall victim to them and it’s undenialble that society’s ideology of beauty are a contributory factor. Anyone who doesn’t meet the criteria by choice or design is not considered by general as beautiful or even frankly acceptable. Being ‘beautiful’ or ‘attractive’ shouldn’t have to be anyone’s most important concern. Based on research studies, young women who are exposed to images of models and celebrities in magazine feel a lot unhappier about their body. Feminist are fighting body hatred, ignorance and fear.

Brief/Title : Feminism - Clothes & Fashion

Rationale : Some women would feel naked without a veil. Others would find it restrictive. Some women would feel restricted by a bra. Others would feel naked without one. Some women would feel restricted by a tight corset. Others just love them. Some women wear lots of clothes with a corset. Others only wear a corset and nothing else. What makes any article of clothing oppressive is someone forcing you to wear it. And it’s just as oppressive to force someone not to wear something that they want to wear.

Brief/Title : Feminism - Body Hair
Rationale : The act of hair removal is not simply influenced by patriarchy but also by capitalism and its imperative to consume endlessly. This is why for women throwing away the razor is still a radical act of both feminism and anti-capitalism. The act of not shaving can be seen as an example of insubordination. Refusing to depilate is a step towards body positivity and self-loving whilst sticking your two fingers up to the authorities. It is a fuck-you to gender-policing homophobes, transphobes and also a form of rejection of the anxiety-inducing, body-shaming messages found in beauty and fashion industries. Until every woman has the real choice to leave her house hairy, unshaven and not be subjected to harassment and criticism, there is a need for body-hair activism. As Janet Fraser once said, “All that time I save in body hair removal, I devote to revolution.”
