Towards the end of Ashley Judd's message to the media and viewers, she brings up the fact that the speculation over her puffy face was initially brought to light by women and even goes so far to say that women are equally responsible for the media objectifiying them and portraying and analyzing them in a way that is ultimately degrading, do you think this is true (that women are equally to blame) for how they are thought about and viewed in the media and society as a whole? Judd also suggests that we look more closely at the source of our views and attitudes about women and puts out the question "what can we do to shed these beliefs?" So my other question is, do you think there is something to be done about how the media covers stories about women's bodies that could possibly help with the issues of representation we are seeing in media today regarding women or do you think they are inevitable?
