Twoday's topic on X(Squared): We discuss the unrealistic standard of beauty laid out for us by the media. From having to fit into a size zero, to being called “plus size” for having hips, and disappearing armpits (it’ll make sense in the vlog) we are constantly bombarded with images of women that are just not real. No, literally. There isn’t one image we see that hasn’t been retouched, photoshopped, stretched, pulled and redesigned. So, why do we take these images in as our reality? It’s a recipe that sets us up to fail (and we aren’t going to take it, anymore!)

Today is the debut of twodaymag’s newest section: X(Squared) Video Blog. Anya Alvarez, twodaymag contributor and women’s health advocate, and I have decided to tackle a heavy (but very important) topic in the realm of women’s rights. Check out our video and these links below that may inspire you to think about this issue differently or to take action and help preserve your rights and your future.
