Whether achieved through law and social policy, as in this and other industrialized countries, or by way of tribal practice and religious ritual, as in older cultures, an individual woman’s body was far more subject to other people’s rules than was that of her male counterpart. Women always seemed to be owned to some degree as the means of reproduction. And as possessions, women’s bodies then became symbols of men’s status, with a value that was often determined by what was rare. Thus, rich cultures valued thin women, and poor cultures valued fat women. Yet all patriarchal cultures valued weakness in women. How else could male dominance survive? In my own country, for example, women who “belong” to rich white men are often thinner (as in “You can never be too rich or too thin”) than those who “belong” to poor men of color; yet those very different groups of males tend to come together in their belief that women are supposed to be weaker than men; that muscles and strength aren’t “feminine.” By

Online, these dedicated fans monitor reputable Hollywood news sources to reblog correct information to combat these crimes.  

These are their stories.
