How "Love Your Body" Became A Marketing Slogan
Media funded and run by women.
Brands have, in recent years, begun to perpetuate the notion that the products they sell can help us love our bodies and, by a false equivalence, ourselves. Women shouldn't need makeup or lingerie to feel sexy. More importantly, they shouldn't need to feel sexy in the first place.
