  • Comments Off on Sage’s Rage: #Oscar my Big Eyes Are Shut

unnamed

i’m hearing lots of chatter about the oscar nominations snub, especially of women.  this awards season it seems like the hollywood insiders are living in a world that doesn’t exist.   everywhere i turn women are making moves…so why can’t i see them making movies?

i love watching films and there are tons that were released last year which were amazing.  i’m not expecting every film i like to get an award but hollywood needs to get a clue.  women make great films and they should be recognized for it.

all of you who are making noise about the lack of diversity in award nominations; i hope you make it your business to turn off the tv when the shows air.  nothing screams irrelevant than low ratings.  maybe they will come around when no one is noticing them anymore.

it worked with tv.  remember when tv was so bad masses fled to the internet and everywhere else to get our entertainment. those execs scrambled and came up with good drama and diverse casts.  now tv is back in fashion.

take note hollywood, we will turn the other way and #ShutOscarsOut

  • Comments Off on Hot off the Press: who looks like that?

many of us ladies look at the ads in magazines or tv and wonder who really looks like that?  the reality is that only a tiny fraction of women are the size of the models that are plastered all over the media.    

Did you know:

– Twenty years ago the average fashion model weighed 8% less than the average woman. Today, she weighs 23% less.

– Ten years ago plus-size models averaged between size 12 and 18. The majority of plus-size models on agency boards are between a size 6 and 14.

– 50% of women wear a size 14 or larger, but most standard clothing outlets cater to sizes 14 or smaller.

In the January 2012 issue of PLUS Model Magazine, plus-size model Katya Zharkova is featured in an explosive editorial about this issue.
