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)!
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?
― ‘Greater than’ by Della Hicks-Wilson
And a fun (important) video that touches on the same themes.
