What If We All Called Out Our Objectification Like Cate Blanchett Did?

February 01, 2014 2 min read

Cate Blanchett is the latest to call out the objectification of women in a completely awesome way. On the red carpet at the SAG awards, an E! News cameraman unabashedly panned Blanchette body and in return, she looked directly at him and asked him if he did that to the men at the awards show too. The E! News host Giuliana Rancic laughs, but Blanchett isn't having it. Cate Blanchette Blanchett is right though. We never see men turning on the red carpet so we can get a good look at what their wearing. Why are men not asked to do pirouettes on the red carpet and scanned up and down? Then, late last year there was an awesome video from Whistling Woods International (an Indian art school) that showed men just how ridiculous they look when they stare at women, because let's face it, we've all been leered at and it's so unnecessary (and uncomfortable!). Then, prior to that, there was photographer Hannah Price. After moving from suburban Colorado to Philadelphia, she realized a stark difference in culture. She now faced daily harassment in the form of catcalls from men on the streets. So she did what any smart woman would do... she called the men out and turned her camera on them. This is what she got: tongue 001 DriveBy 001 3300KFDPRW=0.10 GW=0.10 BW=0.10 RB=9.99 GB=9.99 BB=9.99S3400 3300KFDPRW=0.10 GW=0.10 BW=0.10 RB=9.99 GB=9.99 BB=9.99S3400   Price told The Morning News “Once a guy catcalls me, depending on the situation, I would either candidly take their photograph or walk up to them and ask if I can take their photograph. They usually agree and we talk about our lives as I make their portrait.” What would happen if we all started confronting our objectification this way? It takes a lot of courage to stand up to this kind of treatment. Could you do it? :) Pamela   Photo by: Matt's GIFs Hannah Price
