An artist's work designed to combat negative self image has been closed down by police, because it featured photos of naked women.
Her photographs were set to be displayed in Copenhagen’s Nytorv square, however police denied permission for the exhibition to be shown on the grounds that it is "indecent".
Grafström said the police's actions are "totally reprehensible" and has since filed a complaint against them.
Mathilde Grafström's 'Female Beauty' exhibition shows women who would not be deemed as traditional models in natural settings. For example, climbing a tree, walking in a field or sitting in shallow water.
She said that she shoots naked models as a way to fight her own feelings of insecurity, and help other women do the same.
"I think my hips and breasts are too small," she wrote on her website. "Sometimes when my boyfriend is looking at my body, I think that I'm unattractive."
She said that it's these negative thoughts about her body that make her "less beautiful and unfree", and attributed her negative self image to not feeling good enough, in the eyes of her parents, growing up.
Grafström added: "It's important for me that my models understand that the pictures I want to make of her, is not about how she looks physically, but about the life energy and beauty she contains."
Since her exhibition was disallowed by police, Grafström has hit out at their double standards.
She said that photos featuring naked breasts were still allowed on Copenhagen's buses. The photographs form part of an advertisement for a plastic surgery clinic.
Grafström told HuffPost UK Lifestyle: "I am shocked that society has become so conservative that my art has been made illegal. I don't like this development and I am of course fighting against it by filing a complaint to the police. I am waiting to hear their answer.
"There is also a double standard here in Denmark, where nudity in advertising is legal, but art is getting censored."
She told Denmark's TV2: "I don't understand that my pictures can be offensive. They show something you see when you change clothes at a swimming pool.
"It's totally reprehensible. Total suppression of my art."
Serena Willliams was told she is "built like a man" by Twitter trolls, but that didn't stop her being super body confident. "I love that I am a full woman and I’m strong and I’m powerful and I’m beautiful at the same time," she said. "And there’s nothing wrong with that."
Lines like this are why we love Tess Holliday: "It's okay to be yourself, even if you happen to exist in a fat body. I'm sexy, confident and give no fucks. Also, fuck anyone for saying otherwise. "
Having previously opened up about her struggles with an eating disorder, Demi Lovato posed for an un-touched nude photo featured on the cover of Vanity Fair. "I basically went from hating every single inch of my body to working on myself and trying to figure out ways to love myself and love the skin that I'm in," she said in an accompanying interview. "I learned after working very hard on my spirituality and my soul and my body, I learned that you can get to a place where you love the skin that you're in and I'm excited to share that with the world."
Jameela Jamil has launched an inclusive clothing range to end the plus-size divide once and for all. “I find it infuriating that in this industry, size 10 and above is defined as ‘plus size’ especially when the average dress size in the UK is a 16," she said. "We really shouldn’t be putting a label on size, fashion is for all and I think confidence and happiness is more important than dress labels.”
Chrissy Teigen proved even models aren't perfect when she posted a picture of her stretch marks on Instagram. Her post promoted comments like: "I've had stretch marks since I was 12 years old at 5'9". So important for young girls and now 29 year olds to see."
Actress Kate Winslet is determined to help her daughter develop a healthy body image. "When I grew up, I never heard positive reinforcement about body image from any female in my life," she said. "I only ever heard negatives. That's very damaging because then you're programmed as a young woman to immediately scrutinise yourself and how you look." "And so I stand in front of the mirror and say to Mia, 'We are so lucky that we've got a shape. We're so lucky we're curvy. We're so lucky that we've got good bums.' And she'll say, 'Mummy, I know, thank God.' It's working, that thing that I've been doing. It's paying off."
Lupita Nyong'o has spoken out against the lack of diversity in the media saying: "European standards of beauty are something that plague the entire world—the idea that darker skin is not beautiful, that light skin is the key to success and love." She also loves her skin, as proven by her appearance in a brilliant Sesame Street sketch.
Model Ashley Graham refuses to be defined by her size. "It’s fantastic when I’m not labeled as a plus size model in any interview or editorial I do," she told HuffPost UK Style. "It makes a statement for women out there, 'look she’s not being described by her size, she’s being honoured by the things that she’s doing in the world'."
When a film critic called actress and comedian Amy Schumer "chubby", she responded by saying: "I am a US size 6 and have no plans of changing. This is it. Stay on or get off." Brilliant.
Alexa Chung has been skinny-shamed and called "gross" by online trolls, but instead of letting the haters get her down, she's become a spokesperson for body diversity in the media. "I would love to look like Daisy Lowe, but I don't... but I'm happy with how I look. Equally, I don't want to use this as an example of how young girls should look," she said.
