"Topless and exposed with her arms high above her head. Surrounded and sinking in the shame and ever growing power of the disease. As many bulimics often do, she has to take off her shirt. Maybe she is examining her body for fat, or to make sure she does not stain her shirt as she purges."
"This reminds me of my strong female relatives."
"Fighting back; the primordial woman overcoming her stereotype."
"I like this image, the woman seems powerful, relaxed, doesn't have to pain [sic] her face to feel good about herself."
"Images on ancient Greek pottery show that the women of Minoa vaulted the
bull and participated in games of strength and agility alongside their
countrymen. Today, television and the fashion press are full of
destructive, skeletal body icons for young girls to emulate. Curiously,
one of the most vocal proponents of a healthy body image also portrays a
strong mythic female character on TV: Lucy Lawless of Zena, Warrior Princess!"
