In this episode of Wine & Shine, we delve into the realm of the mainstream media to uncover why women have primarily negative self-perceptions.  We’ll discuss why it’s important to let go of these perceptions and love yourself as you are despite constant media bombardment, while still consciously making choices toward self-improvement.

 

Quotes:

  1. “People definitely thought we were taking engagement photos, and I support that.” - Nina
  2. “How come we can’t see these positive sides of ourselves [and] it takes someone else to point out something that can be super-beautiful?” - Nina
  3. “The issue I have in the mainstream media is that what is and is not attractive is being determined by a bunch of old, white men.” - Liz
  4. “People don’t buy products, they buy what that product will make them become.” - Liz
  5. “How can we begin a shift of having women believe in these ideals sooner so that we can make a shift as a society?” - Nina
  6. “I do think it’s really important for women to support each other, because if we don’t, who will?” - Liz
 

We’ll Discuss:

  • Wine of the Day: 2014 Charles Smith - “Eve” Chardonnay
  • Miss Representation
  • Pro’s and cons: the pageantry of competitive beauty
  • Men are the decision makers in the media, and why that’s a problem
  • The interpretation gap, and supporting retailers you don’t support
  • Body-neutral retailers
  • Youth-targeted and gender-biased media
  • Why we don’t take curvy women seriously
  • The fine line between self-improvement and self-deprecation
  • Your “best” body is up to you
  • Comparing ourselves, positive or negative, is a dangerous game
  • “Pretty is as pretty does.” - Grandma Belden
  • The pressure is real for men, too
