Does Your Style Make You a Prude or a Tease?
You can never win: If you button up that collar too tightly, you're a prude, but if you show cleavage, you're a tease. If you opt for flats, you're old-fashioned, but choosing heels makes you a whore.
This form of sexual stereotyping can place the act of getting dressed onto a damaging scale of self-worth.
Terre Des Femmes, a Swiss feminist organisation, took on the double standards that come with women's style with an ad campaign titled "Don't Measure a Woman's Worth by Her Clothes." The ads aim to shed light on the dangers of making snap judgments about a woman by the cut of her dress.
Artist Theresa Wlokka created the three images and assigned different measures of worth for different areas of the body. From prudish to boring and from cheeky to slutty, the interesting thing is that not a single association is positive. See for yourself, and think twice before looking in the mirror and asking, "Does this skirt make me look slutty?"
