Assigned Video Assignments

Interview with a UN Humanitarian Aid Worker

Tessa, Zack and I reunited to create this short video as part of our assignment to address the United States feminist communities regarding women living in war/conflict zones. In this video, we made a mock video interview of a UN Humanitarian Aid Worker who is currently stationed in Liberia. I hope you enjoy it!

Hair, Hair and MORE Hair!

(song is: I Am Not My Hair ft. Akon by India.Arie)

Natural v. Styled. Long v. Short. Curly v. Straight. Dyed v. Not Dyed. Hair. It is part of our bodies, but can also be considered an artwork or an entity of its own. However, hair is more noticed by some people than others. Sometimes how kept a person’s hair can determine their personality or how well one dresses. Did you know during the London 2012 Olympics Gabby Douglas was criticized for her hair? Tiya Miles writes an article for CNN titled, Opinion: Why focus on Gabby Douglas’ hair?, which discusses how there was a spotlight on Gabby’s hair while also basking in her win of Gold.

While watching the re-run of the Gymnastic events, I was focused on Team USA’s routine and performance. However, I did unconsciously observe each gymnasts’ hairstyle. What I am having trouble wrapping my head around is the fact that there was a major discussion on Gabby Douglas’ hair at the time she is also receiving her Olympic medals. I know that haircare is important, however, do women truly need to mutilate their hair to adhere to a standard that the hegemonic society has set?

Battle Cry on the Streets

Street Harassment is an issue that has been widely discussed on this blog. It has been established that street harassment is NOT okay, but do the harassers think they are harassing? Probably not. As previously mentioned, there are multiple ways to protect oneself from street harassment. However, what if that is not enough? Would we need to threaten and lash out violently against harassers? What if there was a rally protesting against street harassment? What would it look like?

News of A Battle Cry is a short video illustrating the possible ways someone may react towards being street harassed. However, one must think about it, desperate times call for desperate measures. So how do you fault someone for protecting themselves with a frying pan or knife? What if the street harassment was only the beginning of sexual assault?

Helping Hands Health Centere

If Tessa, Zack, and I were to create a health clinic this is what we envision it to be:

This idea stems from an a New York Time’s readers outcry to the editors about Medicaid funding being cut by Romney and Ryan’s proposal to save the economy. Our clinic hopes to give the elderly a well rounded care in an environment that they feel happy and comfortable in.
