I chose to analyze the hashtag “FreeTheNipple”. This hashtag is straight forward and to the point, it advocates for the desexualization of breasts and females in general. It encourages them to post photos of themselves that would be totally normal for men to post, but would be considered either highly sexual or inappropriate for women. It empowers women to take control of their bodies and and expose themselves in a way that society has told them is wrong for their whole lives. The hashtag works to bring awareness to an issue that is otherwise considered too scandalous for mainstream news or TV.
