Ashley Judd has had enough of what she calls a “pointedly nasty, gendered, and misogynistic conversation about femininity in our culture, and she’s inviting women—and men—to speak up about their own experiences. “I want people to share their puffy-face moment,” Judd said on NBC’s Nightly News. “I think what happened to me is very common. It might look a little different than other people’s lives because they might not be public figures, but we all go through it.”
So let’s hear it! Tell us your puffy-face moment—those times you were bullied or judged for your looks, and what you did about it—by writing about it on your tumblr! Be sure to use PUFFYFACEMOMENT as a tag so we’ll see it! We’ll be publishing a bunch of them on The Daily Beast, and reblogging our favorites right here on nwktumblr.
