plus sized models are JUST as unrealistic as skinny models.

They have been elongated, their cellulite has been brushed out, waists pinched and hips widened and rounded.

It makes us think “I’m not even plus sized pretty” when NO-ONE IS.

They aren’t being forward thinking.

They aren’t embracing body positivity

They’ve just creating another unrealistic standard for women to hate themselves for.

i can’t tell if this is just an animation thing, but i doubt bryke and studio mir would just forget this. my bby lost muscle mass.

and it hits me how much trauma she’s experienced.

and i feel as if it’s really underrated, but how much do you think her arms helped define who she really was?

that’s it. that’s the whole show

Monroe's dress was noted for being made of a sheer and flesh colored marquisette fabric, with 2,500 rhinestones sewn into it. The dress was so tight-fitting that Monroe had to be literally sewn into it; she wore nothing underneath. It was designed by Jean Louis. (Marilyn Monroe at JFK’s 45th Birthday)

Rihanna debuted one of her boldest looks yet—a custom, see-through fishnet dress, hand-embellished with more than 216,000 Swarovski crystals, that was created by designer Adam Selman. (Rihanna at the 2014 CFDA Fashion Award)

Meet Jedidah Isler

She is the first black woman to earn a PhD in astronomy from Yale University.

As much as she loves astrophysics, Isler is very aware of the barriers that still remain for young women of color going into science. “It’s unfortunately an as-yet-unresolved part of the experience,” she says. She works to lower those barriers, and also to improve the atmosphere for women of color once they become scientists, noting that “they often face unique barriers as a result of their position at the intersection of race and gender, not to mention class, socioeconomic status and potentially a number of other identities.”

While Isler recounts instances of overt racial and gender discrimination that are jaw-dropping, she says more subtle things happen more often. Isler works with the American Astronomical Society’s commission on the status of minorities in astronomy.

She also believes that while things will improve as more women of color enter the sciences, institutions must lead the way toward creating positive environments for diverse student populations. That is why she is active in directly engaging young women of color: for example participating in a career exploration panel on behalf of the Women’s Commission out of the City of Syracuse Mayor’s Office, meeting with high-achieving middle-school girls. She is also on the board of trustees at the Museum of Science and Technology (MOST).

“Whether I like it or not, I’m one of only a few women of color in this position,” she says. “Addressing these larger issues of access to education and career exploration are just as important as the astrophysical work that I do.”
