WANG opposes valuing women based on how they look, rather than who they are and what they do. WANG also opposes the prohibitive and narrow beauty standards imposed on women that reflect racist, heteronormative, capitalist, sexist, ageist, cissexist and disableist ideologies.

Women everywhere are expected to conform: to remove their body hair, to wear make-up yet look ‘natural’. To diet, and to wear restrictive clothing. All 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 women should not be reduced to how they look, and that conventional beauty techniques aren't the only route to attractive and socially worthwhile people. People of any/no gender are welcome too, and we support all struggles against the pressure to conform to hegemonic representations.

RADICAL SUGGESTION: LET’S NOT BODY-POLICE FAMOUS PEOPLE ANYMORE

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.”
