Jessica Rey presents the history of the evolution of the swimsuit including the origins of its design, how it has changed overtime and the post-feminist association of the bikini symbolizing female empowerment. She refers to neuro-scientific studies revealing how male brains react to images of scantily clad women versus images of women deemed modest and what the implications of the results are for women in society.

(Note: As the OP, I disagree with Rey’s approach to putting the onus on women to alter ourselves rather than to alter the male perception of women – brain wiring has plenty to do with socialization and if we worked against the culture that fuels men’s objectification of women, women’s clothing choices would matter far less in terms of how men perceive us and determine how to interact with us).

Sweetness, sweetness I was only joking 
When I said I’d like to smash every tooth 
In your head 
Oh…sweetness, sweetness, I was only joking 
When I said by rights you should be 
Bludgeoned in your bed

Over three years James Mollison photographed fans outside different concerts for his project The Disciples. As I photographed the project I began to see how the concerts became events for people to come together with surrogate ‘families’, a chance to relive their youth or try and be part of a scene that happened before they were born.”

Green Day - 8th Avenue Serenade

Take a walk out of my life
Sing to me a lullaby
Cradle songs for a midlife
Don’t forget to pass me by

‘Cause my imagination runs away
On this 8th Avenue serenade

Meet me at the bathroom stall
Meet me at the Whispering Wall
Before all the flames burn out
