Feminism & Rape Culture

Wearing a bikini to the beach is one thing … but hanging images of naked and semi naked women everywhere perpetuates rape culture.

1. It causes women to think that if they do not look like airbrushed models then they are not beautiful enough.
2. It perpetuates rape culture by teaching men to expect that they have the right to see women in their underwear.

This does not apply to all men of course, but take a look at the statistics surrounding violence towards women … society is obviously doing something wrong. Jokes, Tv, advertising … the list goes on. If we want to build a world where women are save we need to rethink everything that we are doing.We need feminism because our bodies are not public property.

This is not about underwear models, this is not about the company … this is about stepping back and seeing the pieces that are part of the big picture. Men have a history of treating women like pets, we need feminism because this needs to end
