Jessica Levinson's curator insight, January 10, 2015 11:42 AM

I really found this article and images of how the media creates unrealistic views of body image throughout the use of technology, to be eye-opening. Seeing the before and after photos of these photographs really made me realize how distorted the ideal body should be according to the media and how the models we see are not actually how they appear in print advertisements. Altering a person's body in such a way meet a standard of beauty that is basically impossible, also has an affect on the people who view them. This can cause women to feel that they need to reach these standards of beauty, but they will more likely never be reached since they are false.

You're probably reinforcing sexist thinking without even realizing it with these well-meaning assumptions about women. What other forms of benevolent sexism would you add to the list?

Teaching Kids about Global Poverty

Teaching Kids about Global Poverty | Social Justice and Education | Scoop.it

"Living on One Dollar is a full-length documentary made by four college students who traveled to rural Guatemala to live on just a dollar a day. Upon their return, they created Living On One, a nonprofit to raise awareness and inspire action around global issues like hunger and poverty -- and started by publishing the Change Series of video shorts. I found it so compelling I've dedicated this whole film fest to it. Each episode not only succinctly frames an issue faced by people in the developing world and makes it personal, but also offers resource links to learn more -- and even better -- to do something about it."

bell hooks on education

bell hooks on education | Social Justice and Education | Scoop.it

bell hooks' first major book on education, Teaching to Transgress, was published in 1994. It is a collection of essays exploring her ideas. She writes in a very personal style, often anecdotal giving examples from her own experiences. This is quite deliberate as she intended the book to be read by a diverse audience covering anyone interested in the practice of education. She argued for a progressive, holistic education - engaged pedagogy:

To educate as the practice of freedom is a way of teaching that anyone can learn. That learning process comes easiest to those of us who teach who also believe that there is an aspect of our vocation that is sacred; who believe that our work is not merely to share information but to share in the intellectual and spiritual growth of our students. To teach in a manner that respects and cares for the souls of our students is essential if we are to provide the necessary conditions where learning can most deeply and intimately begin (hooks 1994: 13)

In this YouTube video, Obama is sorting toys for boys and girls for Toy for Tots. He picks up a basketball, and puts it in the girl's category, mentioning that girls play basketball too. Obama is showing relaying that both genders can use the same toys and that sports are not just for boys.
