Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.
(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us)

Fifty years ago President Lyndon Johnson declared a War on Poverty, and photographs taken at the time continued to define what Appalachia looks like for
If you’re into photography, this would be something fun to do if you’re from the Appalachian area.

Come on. This ain’t nothing but a male fantasy.
Sex positivity is nothing new. For as long as I can remember all my favorite pop singers have used sex as a signifier of womanhood. We all know how it goes. Female singer who’d been heretofore either a sweetheart or sexually neutral comes out with an album that posits them as a sex symbol. Janet Jackson does the janet. album. One morning you wake up and Christina Aguilera is booty popping in assless chaps. Madonna’s whole entire career. And I get it. Sexuality really is a big part of becoming an adult. Whether you decide to have sex, or realize that sex just isn’t your thing it’s a major part of your relationships with other adults. This is why it’s so important to teach young women to have a healthy relationship with sex so they understand what a big responsibility it is and how their sexual relationships can affect them emotionally. This is why I understand sex positivity at its base level. Sex positivity attempts to replace the shame many young women grow up associating with sex with pride and love. I understand that. No woman should ever be ashamed of having sex, enjoying sex, or for masturbating. However, I feel we’ve reached a point in which we can not question the displays of female sexuality we are often bombarded with without being accused of “slutshaming” or a new buzzword “kinkshaming”.
