Reflections may be Distorted

From the day we are born, girls and women are taught to obsess about how we look. It starts with constant comments on our hair, shoes and dress as young girls, evolves into pressure to spend hours removing body hair, applying make up, shopping for the latest fashions, and fixating on food and diets. In adulthood, we are rejected from many jobs if we don’t fit the ideals imposed upon us, and internalise a sense of failure if we don’t have the ‘right’ look. Contrast this with boys and men, who receive little attention to their looks, wear a boring uniform that barely changes with the years, and are considered attractive despite making minimal effort.
