Taking Control Of The Male Gaze
Designer Norma Kamali created the sleeping bag coat, but she didn’t stop there. After garnering success as a fashion designer, Kamali made a short film about the objectification of women, titled “Hey Baby.” From that project, sprung a new collaborative website, called Stop Objectification, which aims to empower women to take ownership of their bodies and the messages encoded on it. Users are able to upload photos of their favorite body parts and then write “a caption that let’s the world know what makes you more.” The project gives the power back to women who’ve typically had negative and sexual messages put upon their bodies without regard.
We’re stoked that Kamali came up with this empowerment tool, and hope you give it a try. [Stop Objectification]
