So you see my point Tom? You are wrong when you suggest that it was the women's liberation movement that made it possible to find a 42-year-old woman appealing, or that 42-year-old women flock to yoga and pilates classes to be appealing to men. It isn't that at all.
To deviate from the standard of beauty that is celebrated by the media is not rebellion, it is nature -- but to accept and embrace our own natural individuality has been deemed nothing less than a thought crime
Will the media ever truly be a good vehicle for women and their stories? Not unless women have the option to run the show, ask the questions, and answer them in their own voices. For when women are invisible, their voices are not just lost, their victories are as well.
