one billion rising…

26 Sep

“One billion women being violated is an atrocity.  One billion women – and men – dancing is a revolution.”

Feb. 14, 2013.  A global strike to end the violence.

I will be dancing with my grandchildren.  Who will you be dancing with?

Body Revolution: Gaga Style

26 Sep

Gaga was recently criticized for pictures circumventing around stating that she looked as if she had been gaining weight and thus equating that gaining weight is a bad thing. In the midst of all this criticism, Gaga has launched the “Body Revolution”, a project that encourages her little monsters to share their own “perceived flaws”, that society says they have. Gaga posted a picture of herself on the project site, illustrating her own struggle with bulimia and anorexia. Gaga encourages them to redefine their so called “flaws” and many people within the site have. There are numerous stories discussing body images in relation to eating disorders, disabilities, and battling with disease. Gaga encourages the monsters to redefine their beauty through their flaws. Some people think that Gaga should take it one step further and encourage the monsters to not introduce more “feel good mantras”, but to actually embody some righteous anger, in making what sometimes is deemed as unbeautiful to be beautiful.

 

What do you think of Gaga’s new campaign?

How can this be used to mold a new movement, in particular, a movement against what society deems as beautiful and what “we” people think is really beautiful?
