WANG opposes the prohibitive and narrow beauty standards imposed on women that reflect racist, heteronormative, capitalist, sexist, ageist, cissexist and ableist ideologies. Women everywhere are expected to conform: removing their body hair, hiding their faces under make-up, dieting, and wearing restrictive clothing in order to be considered acceptable, respectable and feminine. If you support women's choice to refuse these regulatory practices, then join WANG! It's not just for the unshaven and undeodorised but for anyone who believes that conventional beauty techniques aren't the only route to attractive and socially worthwhile people. Allies of any/no gender are welcome too, and we support all struggles against the pressure to conform to hegemonic representations. Let's see if we can change things a bit for the better!Join us on Facebook!
“The problem with engaging in this kind of public commentary on the bodies of famous people is that it contributes to a world in which announcing one’s body-size observations is a normal and acceptable thing to do, even when these comments are not about celebrities. It creates a culture in which what we ALL do with our bodies is open for public comment.”
