Through Collaboration With Videography And Dance Can Issues Of Oversexualisation Of Women And Shame Of Women’s Bodies Be Questioned And Can Outdated Viewpoints Be Changed?

A dance film focusing on the oversexualization of women’s bodies in today’s society. I used the poetry of Rupi Kaur to highlight the message that women’s bodies should be celebrated, not shamed. My research helped to solidify the idea that women’s bodies or what they wear are often shamed rather than the actions of others being questioned. Why should women change the way they dress, rather than have people changed the way they think/ act?
