Chloe Hamilton on the other hand has written a hypocritical article that begins with slating Zoella’s looks then goes on to exclaim that young girls/women need better role models. That’s not feminism, that’s outright bullying, and quite frankly if I had a teenage daughter I’d much rather her look up to Zoe Sugg as a role model than the general media that feel this kind of article is ‘journalism’, especially when the ‘journalist’ in question hasn’t even attempted to undertake proper research but has made judgements based on the Zoe’s appearance and vlog titles.
As a role model to young girls she is not flashing her boobs or her backside, she is not sexualised in any way, her make-up tutorials are not creating ‘porn star’ looks, in fact what she is doing is showing young girls how to be confident in themselves and how to have a bitn of fun with their look. The media needs to spend less time promoting the likes of Kim Kardashian & her arse, putting down successful, beautiful young women and actually showing some support for the women who are making a name for themselves by actually working hard rather than simply baring flesh.
Oh and on a final note, how ironic that the sidebar is actually advertising Zoella’s new beauty products?!?
I would love to hear your thoughts on this
