Women Who Shock

Back to the theme of women power. I strongly believe in the equality of male and female. I believe that all of us should be treated equally, nevertheless of who or what we are. Especially on things we were specifically born with. Like, we can’t just ask God for a particular gender, or race. That is why I strongly believe that, no matter what happens, the social, political, and economical equality should be applied to everyone.

So today, I’m going to talk about something---shocking. This portfolio will portray controversial or sensational female icons throughout the history. Women who I admire for being brave and against the norm, against the morality of how women should be like--or just, playing on the safe lines and ending up leaving a great impression.

I’ve always admired how controversial women are just, comfortable of being who they are. The truthfulness in their mind, not limited by the female norms. It’s just refreshing to think of and just, witness. How they are female but not afraid to speak their mind, and eventually become famous, even infamous for some. That’s what I am aiming for to live by, to be remembered, or just simply, to shock and leave expressions and impressions. 

The fact that the majority of people I shoot are female, I wanted to show a different perspectives of how women should be. How elegance can be bold, how beauty can be fierce, how being strong and controversial is just the new classic. To speak out their mind is what is considered sexy, and to brainstorm for they fight for is stunning. 

It just works the way how we respect our mother, how we look up to our female boss. This doesn’t necessarily mean that men should not be respected as much as women, it just demonstrates a sort of equality of how someone should be respected not because of their features, but moreoverly due to who they are as a person, respectably.
