Actress Jameela Jamil Encourages Women To Share Their ‘Weight’ Online!
In a refreshingly body-positive post, actress Jameela Jamil has called on women all around the world to share photos of themselves revealing their ‘weight.’
But before you get your knickers in a knot and call her all sorts of names, hear me out. The weight she’s referring to has nothing to do with kilograms and everything to do with a woman’s self worth- her attributes, her strengths and her achievements!
In the inaugural post on Instagram, Jamil shared a photo of herself with all the things that make up who she is – with no mention of kilograms or pounds. Here’s what she said:
This post of mine started a mad wave of amazing women posting their own back to me in our revolution against shame and self hatred over our looks, perpetuated by the media. I have received thousands and they are too beautiful to not celebrate. I have started an account called @i_weigh to post them all. SEND ME YOURS to that account! I’m fucking tired of seeing women just ignore what’s amazing about them and their lives and their achievements, just because they don’t have a bloody thigh gap. The link is in my bio but please follow the account so we can start this revolution properly and make the fashion and media industry see how many of us are DONE with this shit. ❤️
