Vicky Form is a Mexican lingerie company that has recently released a campaign called ”New commandments for women.” They read,
1. I shall never call another woman a whore. 2. No one can convince me from not wearing a condom. 3. I shall never get pregnant just to keep a man by my side. 4. No one can judge me based on the number of people I’ve slept with. 5. Is my responsibility to fight for my own (woman) rights. 6. I will not tolerate any kind of violence towards myself. 7. I will not fear or be ashamed if I find myself attracted to woman. 8. It is my decision if i want to get married or not. (and don’t deserve to be judged for it.)
I find this campaign to be a ‘big deal’ for the fact that is released in Mexico. One of the most sexists, closed minded and underdeveloped countries in the world.
Not so many companies take the risk to make advertisements like this because they’re obviously going to be criticized and possibly be affected by it.
Someone is taking the risk, telling the truth, and trying to get to the minds of the people. Sharing the fact that we are all human, and have to be equally treated like it, leading to a better and more developed society. Its a big step for Mexico, and for women.
okay be fucking real here
it’d be a big step to have a lingerie company in america do this, too
Yes, that’s right. You are reading it right. Now they do have Les Mis license muscical version in Korea(apart from pirated version in 1993). Les Miserables Korea just finished it’s tour and shortly after this, they’ll start the musical again in April. Hope they come up with better casts… I do like them, but except for Eponine, others are sort of… yeah. Won’t going to say any, it depends!
Date : March 1, 2013 Korean Tour
Cast : Jung Sung-Hwa (Jean Valjean), Moon Jong-Won (Javert), Cho Jung-Eun (Fantine), Jo Sang-Woong (Marius), Lee Ji-Soo (Cosette), Kim Woo-Hyung (Enjorlas), Im Choon-Gil (Thernadier), Park Jun-myun (Madame Thernadier), Park Ji-Yeon(Eponine)
Reading about Anastasia launched a Russian history obsession that lasted until eighth grade and Elizabeth I was the first powerful female figure I had ever encounted. This series and the Magic Tree House series are my entire childhood.
It just occurred to me that female historians are probably the ones responsible for creating this series. They literally supplied me with females heroes they most likely did not have. Whoa, feeling some major retrospective appreciation here. Thank you, lady historians.
I loved the Cleopatra one! She isn’t pictured here but it was amazing.
I appreciate these books more in retrospect than I ever did when I was a kid.
I read the SHIT out of Marie Antoinette.
Oh my god, I need to finish collecting them. I dont have Kristina, Kazunomiya, Lady of Palenque, Weetamoo, Jahanara, Kaiulani, Victoria, Elisabeth, Anacaona, Anastasia, or Catherine.
