Invited inspirational women share three images that have stuck on their mind – and become defining moments.
“I still find it both incredibly frustrating but also perplexing that Instragram continues to enforce such a harsh censhorship policy when it comes to body parts, especially nipples. Given that society uses our female bodies to sell virtually anything nowadays, and X-rated nudity (read: a sex tape) is the key to overnight success, it seems ironic that anyone maintain such a “conservative” policy, let alone an app which is the number one reflection of our time. Though completely different, these three pictures could have been taken by the same woman: a woman who is confident in her own sexuality but not gratuitously so. I love the contrast between that tonal, super-sexualised peach shot that reveals nothing but says all (including that cheeky emoji I so love to use and abuse), the fashion statement shot, where every inch of skin is hidden yet so anchored in the now (hello Vetements vibes) and the naked shot, almost the 2016 version of Gainsbourg burning that 500 francs note live on French TV. #FreeTheNipple“
