Meet the Blogger Behind the Latest Women’s Movement: #SaggyBoobsMatter
There’s a new woman's empowering movement on social media for ladies that do not have perky breasts. Yes, you read that correctly.
The woman that started the movement is a 23-year-old blogger from the U.K. Chidera Eggerue — known on Instagram as The Slumflower — has gotten hundreds of women to celebrate saggy boobs.
I created the hashtag #SAGGYBOOBSMATTER because women are shamed when their bodies don’t appease the male gaze. Saggy boobs are under represented. Being under represented makes you feel alien to society. This fosters insecurities in people who don’t have the mental strength to see value in themselves beyond other people’s standards. Responding to #SAGGYBOOBSMATTER with ‘all boobs matter’ is absurd, as this erases and silences the issue at hand here. If all boobs mattered, all boobs would be equally represented.
Using the hashtag #SaggyBoobsMatter, the creator says she hopes to inspire those women who’ve felt insecure about their less-than-stand-up breasts and to change the image of what the media and most of society thinks is natural beauty.
“I created the hashtag #SaggyBoobsMatter because women are shamed when their bodies don’t appease the male gaze,” Eggerue wrote on Instagram. “Saggy boobs are underrepresented. Being underrepresented makes you feel alien to society.”
There ya go, ladies. Feel free to be beautifully you!
