My roommate showed me this video the other day and I thought that it was very interesting and relevant to what we have been discussing in class. This video shows the evolution of the female image through many centuries, but only focuses on the white female figure, thus ignoring many other cultures and minorities.
As you can see from the video, the female imagine in the beginning was more savage, and gradually transforms throughout the years. The hair, make up, bone structure, as well as outfit of women all change depending on the cultural and political backgrounds of the time. For a large majority of the years, women are seen wearing outfits that inform us of their domestic roles in the household, which contrast to the historical image of men.
What do you all think about the video? Was it the same or different from how you perceived the female image?
