Why Women Must Eat
Of course, we all object to the super skinny waif models, the vast majority of whom have disordered eating, whose bodies look extraordinarily thin behind the camera, and even worse off scenes. Without a doubt, I have found it disturbing that media and subsequently ourselves and our children begin idolizing a body image that is impossible to reach through healthy means, and that resembles a child rather than a grown woman's body ( and I know that male models also have issues, hurrah). Many times I have thought about how we should create contracts, demand healthy standards be set, that anorexic/bulimic etc women are not allowed to walk the runway. But I never considered how deeply anti-feminist this representation of women is , how it cuts down a woman beyond compare.
