If Fashion Ads Treated Men And Women The Same Way
A pretty absurd looking image, as writers Holly Eagleson and Lauren Wade found out when they remade a selection of controversial ads as part an essay on sexism for Take Part.
'I think as a whole we've just gotten used to seeing women depicted this way, and the only way we can change it is if we stop staying silent and demand change,' Ms Wade told The Huffington Post.
I don’t think the American Apparel ones make sense to have here because if you look at the entire spectrum of AA ads there’s a million of men poppin bones in boxers or in equally sexy poses.
Mac: “I’m not raising a nerd.” Charlie: “If it’s a nerd I’m bashing it’s brains in.”
Bought #hiking #boots … I feel like I’m in #JurassicPark … Can’t wait to throw on my high waist khaki shorts and go analyze triceratops poop!!
July 16, 1951: The Catcher in the Rye is Published
On this day in 1951, J.D. Salinger’s novel, The Catcher in the Rye, was published. The novel tells the story of 16-year-old Holden Caulfield, a troubled character who challenged 1950s conformity, much like Salinger himself.
Due to its somewhat rebellious tone, Salinger’s work has been linked to issues of controversy and censorship. Even so, over 60 years later, The Catcher in the Rye has sold over 65 million copies and continues to sell an additional 500,000 each year.
