You may dress as you like , just know what men think of you when you dress like a lady of the night and be prepared for their actions .

This video bothers me on a couple of levels, but the main problem here is that she seems to allude that it's strictly a woman's responsibility to hide her body, lest the man be tempted. Ummmm .... no. And, again, NO! Now, I'm not saying guys won't look at a girl in a bikini, but taking a look and ogling are two very different things. And let's be real for a sec; if a guy sees a woman he finds attractive, it doesn't matter if she's wearing a bikini or a parka, he'll find a way to fantasize. But, do some men see women as objects? Yes. Is it because of the way they dress? No, it's the way they've been conditioned. And the reverse is also true; there are some women who see men the same way when he's shirtless on the beach or whatever, and that is also social conditioning. Anyway, my point is, if you want to dress "modestly" that's all well and good, but don't shame another woman who happens to be comfortable with her body and has a different sense of fashion than you. There's been way too much emphasis put on what a woman wears, when in reality, the focus should be on how she acts as a human being. So yeah, ladies, if you want to wear a bikini and feel comfortable doing so, go for it! It's a man's responsibility to exhibit self-control when he looks at you, not your responsibility to cover up in "modesty."

I agree with and admire her rally against the new status quo. She's right, a women shouldn't feel ashamed to wear modest clothing. But you don't promote that by also basically illustrating why it's shameful to wear "un-modest" clothing. She goes wrong when she brings up studies (done likely by men) on men analyzing their cognitive responses to how women dress. Why the hell do women need to care what specifically men (who's thinking tends to be not in the right place) think about them all the time? Why in her talk is that the only measure of power? Social attitudes are alway changing depending on where you are and what time in history you're looking at. I could go on all day about why the religious motivation of what she's saying contradicts what she wants to convey. I'll end in saying if you want to empower women, encourage them to think for themselves about important things like planning for their future, not worrying about what's wrong with the bathing suit they wore last weekend.

So i should have to dress accordingly?

As the presentation stated , the medical evidence proves that men view women who dress provocatively as inanimate objects . End of story .

I have NOT worn a bikini since I was 10 years old.....My grandmother taught us that when a girl starts looking like a woman she has a responsibility to honor herself and God by being modest.

Thank you Jeannie Oakes Herod, somebody needed to correct that school boy error. Seriously Wayne it's in the first few pages! After that we can really get into it with further references.

Wayne Holden - Well the Bible is God's word - read scripture from I Timothy, I Corinthians, Proverbs - I believe you will many verses that address women and modesty/beauty . .

Still way too short, the bible state if you show your thigh you are naked. The thigh starts at the knee. As a man or a woman your knee should not be uncovered. Isaiah 47:1 Come down, and sit in the dust, O virgin daughter of Babylon, sit on the ground: [there is] no throne, O daughter of the Chaldeans: for thou shalt no more be called tender and delicate. 2 Take the millstones, and grind meal: uncover thy locks, make bare the leg, uncover the thigh, pass over the rivers. 3 Thy nakedness shall be uncovered, yea, thy shame shall be seen: I will take vengeance, and I will not meet [thee as] a man. Exodus 28:42 And thou shalt make them linen breeches to cover their nakedness; from the loins even unto the thighs they shall reach: 1 Timothy 2:9 In like manner also, that women adorn themselves in modest apparel...

The fact that men's PFC's shut down upon viewing certain images is evidence that they are less evolved than their female counterparts. As the more evolved segment of our species, we women carry the greater responsibility for many things (ie. childbearing which you KNOW men could never handle) including our own protection from the more simian males in our midst. I'm not saying all males are less evolved, but the majority are - and science proves it. Ladies, with greater awareness and enlightenment comes greater responsibility. It is your choice to do with it as you please. I for one, always carry mace.

I just want to know where she's speaking at lol this reminds me of Ted Talks

You said "why does it always have to be connected with the way men view it?" and then followed it up by saying you don't want to believe the science; why do you have to be so self-centered when there are 7 Billion other people on the planet? and, why don't you care enough about yourself, not to mention the rest of women, and the rest of everybody, to accept the truth and just believe what is right? Instead, you pretend yourself to be smarter than geniuses. Which is dumber? To be of average intelligence? Or to be of average intelligence and to think yourself a genius? Someday all little girls must grow up. One day, all will admit what is right over their own 'opinion'...

Tim Buckle since some of those tribes you refer to DO abuse and treat their women more like slaves than equal members of the tribe, you could be barking up the wrong tree on this.

The thing is, modesty isn't about whether or not someone else thinks you're revealing too much skin, or whether someone else is objectifying you. Modesty is about having enough respect for yourself and your body to keep it covered. I don't go around with my breasts hanging out of my shirt because my body is for ME, and for the man I choose to share it with. It's not for everyone in the world. I have too much respect for myself to allow others to know what I look like naked, or nearly naked. I'm not ashamed of my body. I respect it; and thus I won't cheapen myself by making my body readily accessible to anyone who cares to look at it. I am worth more than that.
