Dynamics Women in the

st Century

The world is currently undergoing a shift; small shifts in attitudes and actions that are re-shaping the way women are perceived in society today. My project aims were to delve further into the ‘Female Century,’ by exploring what it means to be a Modern Day Woman in society today and how we could evolve current perceptions into a more positive one that young women can aspire to by offering them something new. After watching Miss Representation, I learned that most of the people in power were men, so most of what women know about themselves – come from men. An interesting thought, that set of my creative mind.

Beauty Sickness

Objectification Theory - Renee Engeln

14


“Beauty sickness is what happens when women spend so much time, worrying not about their education, their career goals, their family or their relationship. Not about the state of the economy, the state of the environment, the state of the world - because they are too busy worrying about their weight loss goals, their skin care regiment, the state of their arms, the state of their abs, the state of their thighs...�

“When we point the camera at one thing,

we are pointing it away from another.

Thus, one of the first things to look

at when viewing the media

is what you cannot see.�

16


Having looked heavily into where the future is headed for women, and how the gender revolutions that are taking place in the workplace would soon change the dynamics of our society, I realised that there were hardly any magazines on the newsstands that supported women internally. Almost all magazines pointed towards how women look and how they can please their men. While there have been some subtle changes in magazines such as The Gentlewoman, Libertine and Hearst Empowerment, there is very little for young ambitious women who want more substance. With this in mind, I created ‘Hustle,’ a magazine for women with both passion and purpose.

Hustle // Verb*

Hustle is a combination of mindset, belief and action that leads to the opportunity you desire. To hustle is to go after what you want with the end vision and goal in mind; it is about stepping outside of your comfort zone for the benefit of the bigger dream. Be

creativity the answer?

Exploring the current education system in relation to society today, highlighting the limited conditioning children develop as they grow older and identifying why divergent thinking is essential for the future. Heavily inspired by Sir Ken Robinson, an internationally recognised speaker and author leading the way in creativity and innovation within education and business, I became fascinated into the way our education system replicates the needs of the Industrial Revolution. I began questioning whether or not the current system reflects society’s needs for the future and how creativity could potentially bridge the gap.

“Tell me, and I forget

Show me, and i remember,

Let me do, and I understand.�

24


In order to make sense of the world they live in children need to be able to relate to what it is they are learning, and understand how they will be able to use it in every day life. Teaching them facts alone will not inspire them and excite them about the prospect of learning – especially as they have more distractions then we ever did. Everything they want is at a click off a button. Technology has quite literally changed the way this generation works, and never before in history has this been the case. I propose an outside organisation that focuses on creating and setting up week long projects, events and challenges that encourage and push for more creative and divergent thinking within the classrooms. Projects and independent thinking that allows students to find their own passion, their own strengths and their own weaknesses that go beyond academics. Students should be learning the importance of mind-set, and positive attitudes, so they can begin to take full control and responsibilities of their own life.
