Laura O- Popstars and sexuality

This article, written by the actress Rashida Jones caught my attention this morning. She is basically responding to the outcry she recieved for criticizing today’s celebrity for their explicit sexual dress and behavior- Miley, Rihanna, Nikki Minaj wearing next to nothing, sticking their tongues out, and increasingly pushing the limits has become the norm. The general response from women on twitter  accused her of “slut shaming” or being anti-feminist. She is trying to express that while women are free to express themselves, they must be mindful of the influence they are having on younger girls: “there is a whole generation of young women watching”. This is highly relevant to the reading “Feminism and Fashion” where women who were claiming to support feminsm condemned women who dressed provocatively or in ways that are suggestive to men rather than for their own pleasure.
