Girl on girl shaming – sexist articles about #GlamourAwards2016

The Glamour Women of the Year Awards are said to celebrate the women of entertainment, with stars flocking to the event including Kourtney Kardashian, Caroline Flack and Amanda Holden.

However, for an event which is MEANT to celebrate women and their achievements, including Jennifer Saunders who took home the outstanding contribution accolade, the press seem to treat it as a chance to slay the women who attend for their dress sense.

Eughhhhh. Cringe.

Here’s some of the women who attended the event and the headlines that came with their fashion choices.

So this is Jenna Coleman. She was in that little thing called Doctor Who and is starring in Me Before You this summer.

However, here’s what the press have said about this young, inspiring woman’s outfit.

Mail Online make a sexist headline about Coleman’s frock. That’s so not like them!

…and Express online weren’t fond of her dress.

Mail Online also criticised her for covering up her shape. Imagine!

Covered from top to toe: The brunette wore a semi-sheer floaty fabric almost from to toe

OK, let’s move on as my left eye is starting to twitch incessantly. Here’s what else was said about the women who attended the event to celebrate women. (I know, I know)

OK Magazine went a bit cray on Kourtney Kardashian’s outfit.
Amanda Holden also got a bollocking from OK Online’s fashion police.

This is ridiculous. We need to stop this woman-shaming. Period. When the event you’re writing about takes pride in supporting women’s equality and their importance in the entertainment industry, it’s just embarrassing to use that as a reason to destroy their physical appearance.

It completely baffles me how these writers and editors do not see this.

If you also agree, comment and share.

Lots of love,

  1. You are absolutely right! People should not talk about how women dress, but about what important things they can contribute to society!

    I don’t reblog a lot — but this post from “Hopeless Hannah” gets is exactly right. What a ridiculous way to celebrate women’s accomplishments. If you agree, please drop by her blog and give her a like.

    And could we please celebrate women for something other than glamour?

    It’s actually worse than shaming…’s saying, as usual, that women are only celebrated for how they LOOK rather than for any talent or intelligence they may have. The media and society say it quite clearly – we’re just body parts.
