"THIS IS FOR THE LADIES" by Amal Kassir – YouTube

Wonderful indictment of the commodification of women and how women buy into being reduced to sex objects.  Covering oneself up from head to toe in order to shroud one’s sexuality or not “inflame the desire of men” is also an oppression, however, which reduces women to nothing but bodies objectified by men as well.  The answer, I believe, is in finding the middle ground—one’s own comfortable, unique style, not prettifying or plainifying for approval—and dressing for oneself rather than others.
