Overview

At a very young age, many girls come to understand that, at least in some capacity, their worth is linked to their appearance. Beauty is often conflated with value, and the self-worth of young girls becomes attached to the opinions and perspectives of others.

Emily Ratajkowski first entered the modeling world at age 12, after believing for many years that her beauty is what made her special. Ratajkowski was thrown into the spotlight in her early 20s through Robin Thicke's controversial music video for Blurred Lines, which featured her dancing mostly naked.

Throughout her career, Ratajkowski had come to accept that she was objectified and sexualized in an industry that valued her solely because of her appeal to the male gaze. Now, as a writer and a mother, Ratajkowski unpacks and unravels her ideas of what feminism, control, and empowerment look like.

Favorite Quote

"I had made a practice of dismissing experiences that were painful or incongruent with what I wanted to believe: that I was the living testament of a woman empowered through commodifying her image and body."
