‘Frozen’ the Movie – THAT Dress Change… I Can’t ‘Let It Go’

http://m.huffpost.com/uk/entry/6803252

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.

  1. There are so many things I could write about on this day that I can’t really narrow it down.
    Then there are some who are outraged. They think having a day set aside for women doesn’t help at all and possibly makes it worse.
    Equal rights is what it is all about so I am writing about respect, but writing won’t bring the kind of respect I am talking about.
    So many women and other human beings suffering out there, by the hands of men and other humans who wouldn’t know the word “respect” if it walked up and bit them.
    😦
    Happy International Women’s Day to you still and congrats on being published with this on HP.

    • You’re right there are terrible things happening out there and we still have much progress to make in terms of ‘really’ having equal rights and not being judged by our gender and the way we look.
      We have a degree of respect, but I agree we are not far enough at all yet.
      But we also have so much to celebrate on this day – so many amazing, compassionate women out there like yourself that make a difference each day.
      Thank you so much for sharing the post via Twitter. I really appreciate it.
      Happy International Women’s Day to you too – let’s go kick some ass! 😉
