Women all have that one thing they hide. Women spend a lot of time hiding parts of themselves that they, for whatever reason, feel ashamed of. Some of us hide our face behind makeup, some hide scars, some hide grey hair, some hide emotions, some hide fat, some hide intelligence, some hide cellulite, some hide struggles, we all have something we want to hide. When we expose that part of us, whatever the degree, it is terrifying.
At More Than the Image we want to expose the things we hide and accept that within ourselves. We want to show the whole woman in the media. We want to show more than a strong woman. We want to show more than the beautiful woman. We want to show the exposed woman and the part of women that struggles. Our purpose at More Than the Image is to show the complete and whole picture of women.
We invite you to show your naked face, your undone hair, your weakness, your wrinkles, your rolls, your scars and your worry. We want to show that part of women and we want to LOVE that part of ourselves so we can put out in the media a complete picture of who we are.
Think of women who work with babies on their backs and women who in the past would have to walk around with high heels just to have a job that a man would have. Women that couldn’t complain, but had to produce. We are done with that as women. We are done trying to fit into a man’s ideal and a man’s working schedule.
We are ready to be honest with ourselves and society.
We couldn’t think of a better time to launch More Than the Image than on International Women’s Day. Our mission has always been dedicated to portraying women in real and non-stereotyped ways.
Please share a photo of yourself or write something about yourself so we can have a balanced look at who and what women really are. #morethantheimage ##IWD2019 #balanceforbetter
