In the ‘Underneath We Are Women’ book, 100 women, 100 bodies, and 100 stories are showcased to show the endless diversity of the female form.
If you live in a first or even second-world nation, chances are you feel less than stellar about your physical appearance. In fact, Psych Central relays that approximately 75% of women in the U.S. are unhappy with their bodies and, in effect, have adopted some form of eating disorder.
Not only can feeling uncomfortable with one’s physical appearance be emotionally burdening, it can eventually lead to depression. Unfortunately, mainstream media commonly promotes the idea that one’s worth is based on their looks, material goods, and status in society.
To fight beauty stereotypes and remind the world that peoples’ worth is based on who they are, not what they wear or how they look, an Australian photographer captured 100 women in nothing but their knickers.
The artist, Amy D Herrman, created the book ‘Underneath We Are Women’ to show the endless diversity of the female form. According to DeMilked, the main goal of the resource is to ‘educate thousands’ by featuring ‘100 women, 100 bodies, 100 stories’.
No judgements and no opinions of others are found in the book. Only the raw, gorgeous photos of diverse women hoping to put an end to outdated stereotypes.
If you’re inspired by this project, consider helping Amy raise money through Kickstarter so she can print 400 copies of the book!
