Someone else

Being a woman, I struggle with the idea of what success is for women and how these constructions are mediated. I am fascinated by cultural public figures who achieve a certain success. Hillary Clinton and Marina Ambramovic are examples of the highly accomplished women who I look up to for their professional achievements, but who sometimes repel me, as I don’t often like what I learn of them facilitated through the media. The public opinion of these successful women is tainted with how the media and others portray them to society.
