Ashley Judd, writing on the site, fights back at those in the media who speculated on her “puffy” appearance, calling the frenzy a misogynistic assault on all women.Why even stoop to their level?
I choose to address it because the conversation was pointedly nasty, gendered, and misogynistic and embodies what all girls and women in our culture, to a greater or lesser degree, endure every day, in ways both outrageous and subtle. The assault on our body image, the hypersexualization of girls and women and subsequent degradation of our sexuality as we walk through the decades, and the general incessant objectification is what this conversation allegedly about my face is really about.
And she’s only getting started! Yea girl. Read Ashley Judd Slaps Media on The Daily Beast.
