archive of winners 20: Fotoshop by Adobé

“Maybe she’s born with it…Uhh, no I’m pretty sure it’s photoshopped.” Filmmaker Jesse Rosten parodies society’s standard of beauty and we are loving it! The great thing about this parody is that it makes fun of the norms that are found in real beauty ads to show how ridiculous they truly are. In his mock Continue reading


Glamour-Poll

archive of winners 17: Glamour wants us all to STOP body-shaming

Glamour’s June 2012 issue talks about how women, both thin and heavy, are negatively stereotyped in our society.

Nike’s “Voices” ad features successful women athletes who overcame obstacles and sexism and celebrates how far women’s sports have come.

archive of winners 19: Parks and Recreation shows women can get what they really want

We love you, Amy Poehler! You feed us girl-power, and we barely know it’s going down. This clip of the episode “Win, Lose, or Draw” (Season 4 finale) brought happy tears to my eyes. Seeing a woman achieving what she wants, even if it’s “just” a councilwoman position in a tiny town in Indiana, made Continue reading

archive of winners 7: The Hunger Games really satisfies

There are so many reasons we love the Hunger Games book AND movie: There’s a strong, awesome heroine, Katniss Everdeen (played by Jennifer Lawrence), who also shows her vulnerability, love, and fear. And she doesn’t have the smoothest social skills, preferring to be alone and taciturn. a) Who does have perfect social skills? and b) Continue reading

If you haven’t heard of or watched Smart Girls at the Party, you will now, and you will love it!

Consistently incorporating models of all colors, shapes and sizes, Glamour has stayed true to its promise of leading a Body Image Revolution. What’s most refreshing about Glamour’s commitment Continue reading
