Turn Off the TV: How Media Gender Bias is Affecting Us All

At Hipsters for Sisters, one of our central missions is to help empower women. As we see it, one of the biggest obstacles standing in our way is our own self-perception. From the day we are born, we are bombarded with messages from the media which subliminally cause us to feel that our worth is determined more by how we look than who we are or what we do. Worst and most damaging of all, is that we have been trained to subconsciously see ourselves as objects to be judged. We want to be pretty because we are told that is where our value lies. Then, just to make us really feel confused and insecure, we are given mixed messages: yes, legally, you can be anything you want, but the only examples we see valued on television or in the movies are women in supporting, sexualized roles. The media seems to make women choose: do you want success or do you want love? This is at the heart of the issue.

We are so grateful for the overwhelming enthusiasm and warm reception we've received within the past few months. In case you haven't been keeping up with us on social media (it's not too late- instagram, twitter, facebook, pinterest) we wanted to share with you some of the love we've received. Here are some of our favorite ways we've seen our belt bags styled across the web.
