As part of a movement to promote awareness about street harassment, actress Shoshana Roberts spent 10 hours silently walking around New York with a hidden camera, documenting how she was treated by men.
Sponsored by the Canadian Association for Equality (CAFE), former Feminist Dr. Janice Fiamengo was due to speak at the University of Ottawa, March 28, about men's issues and the double standards of Feminism. What was supposed to be a civil discussion turned into a mess as protesters decided to go beyond voicing their views to actively disrupt the event (again) in an incredibly immature fashion.
This marks the third time that Feminists & Friends have interfered with a men's rights event.
What started as a series of photos meant as a joke has become a trending expectation that may further the negative body images of young women with eating disorders.
The term 'bikini bridge' refers to the space between a woman's bikini bottoms and her stomach while lying on her back. A group of anonymous users of 4chan started circulating a series of the images as a prank. The images included comments like "I love it when...guys notice my bikini bridge" and " if your girlfriend doesn't have a bikini bridge why are you with her?"
But what started as a joke has triggered deep concern regarding the impact of these images on young women with negative body image issues. Experts say that those with eating disorders see this as a challenge and what is a joke to some may be taken very seriously as an aspirational goal to others.
