#Empowered ~ Lena Dunham
Writer, actress, director, activist...Lena Dunham for president!
At 23 years old, Lena created TV show Girls, a cult comedy tale of friendship, love, sex, work; a feminist must-watch.
Several seasons on, Lena has used her celebrity status as a platform for making a change. The nudity in her show normalises the female form and provides viewers with ‘regular’ bodies in the media. She aches to inspire teen girls, speaking out through social media to the torrent of hateful online commentary she has endured from the start of her career.
“My body isn’t fair game. No one’s is, no matter their size, color, gender identity,
and there’s a place for us all in popular culture to be recognized as beautiful.”
Lena has become a symbol in pop-culture for empowerment and embracing your imperfections. We applaud Lena, for addressing online trolls showing a younger generation that body-shaming will not be tolerated.
