“Women were expected to be sexual gatekeepers, required to set boundaries for going to bed, and blamed if things went awry.”
Allison Yarrow, 90s Bitch: The Real Story of the Women America Loved to Hate

“Objectification theory” explained that women and girls are “acculturated to internalize an observer’s perspective as a primary view of their physical selves.” Thus, because society values female bodies primarily for their function and consumption, women and girls are more susceptible to suffering as their bodies change, like during puberty, but also due to pregnancy, weight fluctuation, and aging. This objectification enables discrimination, sexual violence, undervaluing women, and depression, the authors wrote.”
