The Double Standards Women Face From a Comic

December 29, 2013 2 min read

Katarzyna Babis is a 20 year-old cartoonist.  She's come up with one of the most compelling ways to talk about the double standard women face every day in our culture about the way they dress or the life choices that they make.  For her feminism means allowing women to make choices they wish without the risk of judgement or censure.  The comic showcases six women in six different positions in life, the choices they have made, and they received incredibly hypocritical criticism about those choices. "[I wanted to start a] discussion about the problem with the way women are perceived by the society, about huge and often contradictory expectations that are put on their shoulders," Babis told the Huffington Post in an email. "In this reality, a woman’s body doesn’t belong to her –- it is either a public property, intended only to be admired, or a source of sin, shame and guilt.  I would like to take away the bad rep of the word 'feminism,' broaden the awareness of the actual agenda of this movement, and of the need for discussion about the way in which women are treated in our society," Babis told HuffPost. The comic is a great start for that.  She states that feminism isn't about burning bras or hating men or even trying to emulate them.  The comic emulates the "no win" that women are faced with no matter the life path that they choose...there never seems to be a 'right one.'  And unfortunately it's true.  Mothers are facing this more and more as the culture hits back snidely against women who work "too" much outside of the home and don't have unlimited time for their children.  Yet stay at home moms who decide to raise their children are criticized for having no ambition and being too lazy to contribute to the family finances.   original-e1387638667914   Do you follow us on Instagram?

Shipping & Delivery

Due to COVID-19, shipping systems the world over are experiencing abnormal delays. There is an enormous demand on postal and delivery services as online shopping has skyrocketed, due to store closures and stay-at-home mandates. This is an unprecedented situation, and we are working around the clock to fulfill your orders as quickly as possible. To be clear, we are filling orders in 2-3 days, and we are shipping immediately after that. Once shipped, our shipping partner, UPS, will get your order out to you as quickly as possible. Thanks for your support and understanding.

Are you in Canada? Specifically, are you outside of a metropolitan centre? We need to alert you to a disruption in shipping due to COVID-19. Our preferred shipping provider, UPS, has informed us that they cannot guarantee express shipping for many locations. We have also seen that packages delivered to Toronto, Ottawa, Vancouver, etc, are not waylaid, but packages delivered to areas just outside of these cities are being held in transit for days or even weeks. UPS has discontinued their guarantee of 1-4 day delivery, which you can read more about here. Therefore, we can guarantee early fulfillment but not early delivery of our goods from our warehouse to your door at this time.

 

We want you to start your fitness journey with us as quickly as possible, that’s why we send every package to the USA & Canada via expedited or standard shipping with our partners at UPS. Once your order is received and processed, it typically takes 2-4 days to get to you once it leaves our warehouse. That’s our commitment and we stand by it.

We ship within Canada and the United States via UPS with Standard & Expedited shipping (whichever is faster)

For locations outside of the US and Canada, we ship using FedEx International (EUROPE and Other Nations), which is usually in transit for 7-10 business days, depending on location.

We ship all of our physical products with UPS, from our warehouse location in Kingston, Ontario, Canada. Delays caused due to custom withholds are not included in these estimated delivery times.

Returns & Exchanges

BodyRock Equipment

We offer a 30-day return policy, as long as: it is not more than 30 days past the date of delivery; and your item is in its original condition and packaging with the original order number. Refunds will be issued when the equipment is received back to the BodyRock warehouse, minus the original cost of shipping, and the customer is responsible for the costs of return shipping. To request a refund on physical product purchases, please contact us.

Digital Products

We cannot issue refunds on digital goods such as e-books or videos, as these are non-tangible goods that are irrevocable once the order is placed.
