The Sissy State - A Blog Made to Empower Women


Throughout my whole semester in Newsactivism, I had the chance to write about various interesting problems such as the introduction of the travel ban by the Trump’s administration, Kim Kardashian’s slut-shaming story and even made an opinion piece on the fake news. Going in the same direction for my final project, I took the liberty to create a blog tackling different women’s issues like feminism, rape culture and the pressure of being perfect – in other words, issues I am passionate about – instead of writing a research paper or take a volunteer opportunity.

I chose to write about this ad, amongst many others depicting women in troublesome ways, because it displays something we are seeing much too often in recent times. I’m talking about rape culture.
