The Headless Women project seeks to bring attention to the still standard practice of fragmenting, objectifying and dehumanizing the images of women we see in film, television, and advertisement.
By decapitating the woman, she becomes an unquestionably passive object to the male gaze. The question of her consent is removed completely alongside her head, and her purpose becomes solely that of being looked at by men obediently. Her value is that only of her sexual appeal to men, and not of her personhood.
It has been featured in: USA Today, Buzzfeed, E!News, AV Club, Funny or Die, Hello Giggles, The Frisky, Mashable, Elite Daily, Stylist, Telegraph UK, Huffington Post UK, SomeECards, MIC, and on the popular podcast Guys We F***ed with Corinne Fisher & Krystyna Hutchinson.
