Watch This Body Painter Boldly Address Damaging Labels Towards Women

Jordan Hanz is a YouTuber and body painter who chose to visually display how society's damaging labels affect women.

In a stop-motion video titled "Unattainable Woman," she showcases different words on her body like "bitch" and "prude" while she narrates the negative stereotypes associated with them. 

In the video she says: "If a woman shows confidence, defends herself, shows a differing opinion than what someone else may have, she's considered a bitch,"

Hanz told The Huffington Post that her inspiration for this video came from Amber Rose and Blach Chyna. The two celebrities wore outfits highlighting the words "stripper" and "slut" to the 2015 MTV VMAs. 

While opening up about the emotions behind the experience, especially while writing "asking for it" across her chest, she revealed that she was a victim of sexual assault. 

"Writing 'asking for it' on myself was very intense and it really hit home to me, but it was very liberating to actually smear the words and completely be taking away the words with paint and making from the words a masterpiece with paint," she said.

Through her video, she hopes to encourage other women to empower themselves and break free from these labels while fully accepting their true selves.
