‘Frozen’ the Movie – THAT Dress Change… I Can’t ‘Let It Go’
An excerpt from the piece…
“Why do we as a society continually promote that being attractive, showing skin, wearing make up and walking ‘sassily’ is equal to being happy or successful?
Why are we intent on sexualising our young girls?
Why should being attractive in terms of what society approves of equate with being happy or successful?
These subtle inferences have an impact on our children and their futures. They impact how our children think and what they aspire to.
We keep saying that our children should be free to decide who they are and how they want to live, but with everything that surrounds them visually, are they ever being given a choice? How many are strong enough to not conform to society’s ‘ideals’? Really?”
It’s International Women’s Day; go out and celebrate women for their intelligence, their strength, their love, their courage, their passion, their vision.
Women, go out there and make a difference to the world with ALL that you are and have been given from within. Be amazing. Be YOU.
