A small step forward....

Thank you anonymous blogging friend for sending me this an article about one of the 'real women' who have been taking part in these adverts for Dove toiletries which are using women who are bigger than models. I suppose the idea is that us simpleminded women folk look at the ads and think - wow - real women - while ignoring the fact that its simply diversity by numbers at best, and, and this is the key, I feel, Its Still Using Naked Women to Sell Stuff. Which is about viewing women as objects, a commodity if you will.

Us feminists frown on that sort of thing y'know. How sad is it, that in order to feel good about her body this woman needs to pose in her pants?
