BEAUTIFUL - HAGS Ep 001

Welcome to HAGS! We're a brand new feminist podcast dedicated to deconstructing and demystifying the ways that society places values on women. In our inaugural episode, we tackle one of the major standards that women have been measured by for literally thousands of years: the way that they look. 

Here are some things we reference in this episode:

Dove Real Beauty Campaign - women describe themselves to portrait artists.

A Boy Named Sue - where Johnny Cash sings about how terrible it would be to be given a girl's name at birth. 

The politics of pockets:

The Sexist, Political History of Pockets

Much has been written about how sexism dictates whether a garment gets usable pockets. While class unquestionably plays a part, men's clothing tends to have capacious, visible pockets; women's clothing tends to have small pockets, if any at all.
