Beautiful Words

As I begin digging into the pile of term papers that await me (so that I don’t get crushed in a few weeks) I’m taking on female body image and the global fashion community, concepts of the maternal, and race.


I came across this beautiful poem on Tumblr. Enjoy (and happy paper writing if you’re in the same boat as me)!

who taught you
that the
value of a woman
is the ratio
of her waist
to her hips
and the circumference
of her buttocks
and the volume
of her lips?
Your math
dangerously wrong
her value
nothing less

‘Greater than’ by Della Hicks-Wilson

And a fun (important) video that touches on the same themes.
