While women are being encouraged to be "beautiful", it's not supposed to be for ourselves; it's supposed to be for other people. We're supposed to look good, but not on our own terms or by our own standards. We're meant to be these aesthetically appealing objects that exist to be admired by - let's be honest here - men.

They Can Ignore Our Boaty, But They Can Never Ignore Our Votey

Sarah Ann Harris | Posted 06.05.2016 | UK
Sarah Ann Harris

There's something heartening about the fact that the Boaty poll proved that Britons can get animated about something - even something which many would regard as dry and sciencey.
