Serijom fotografija ‘Line Series’ Sarah Coffman, 24-ogodišnja blogerica pokušava promijeniti način na koji žene vide svoje tijelo.
”Kao žene uvijek se pokušavamo uklopiti u uvriježena mišljenja ‘dovoljno mlada’, ‘dovoljno lijepa’, ‘dovoljno pristojna’, ‘dovoljno mršava’, a da nikada ne postanemo previše”, rekla je Coffman za BuzzFeed News.
Mlada fotografkinja je okupila svoje prijateljice te ih fotografirala u donjem rublju kako čitaju magazine.
”Ako želite biti prihvaćeni u društvu, uvijek se morate držati unutar linija”, stoga je Coffman svojim modelima nacrtala linije na tijelima slične onima koje crtaju plastični kirurzi na mjestima koja bi se trebala popraviti. Ovim je željela pokazati što magazini smatraju neprihvatljivim.  Coffman kaže kako je inspirirana da stvori ovu ‘Line seriju’ zato što je ona upravo bila jedna od žena koja je bila opterećena prikazivanjem žena u medijima.
”Svaka žena ima te linije nesigurnosti koje cijelo vrijeme rastu jer im mi dopuštamo. Mediji imaju tako velik i strašan utjecaj na nas jer im to dopuštamo”, kaže ova mlada fotografkinja.
Coffman se nada kako će njen projekt inspirirati ljude da prestanu osuđivati druge žene zbog njihove veličine.
”Mi smo puno više od tijela u kojima živimo”, kaže ova mlada fotografkinja.

"As women we try to fit inside of 'young enough,' 'thin enough,' 'pretty enough,' 'nice enough,' 'tough enough,' 'able enough,' without ever becoming 'too much,'" Coffman told BuzzFeed News.

They also drew lines on their body in Sharpie markers — similar to what plastic surgeons would do — to show what these magazines would consider their "imperfections."

"If you look at the cover of any woman's magazine there's three main themes: what can you do for men, learn to love yourself, and how to lose 30 pounds in some ridiculously unhealthy amount of time," Coffman said.

"How can anyone be okay with these articles? Why do we have to care SO much about what HE thinks?"

According to the blogger, she was inspired to create the Line Series because of how she's been personally affected by the portrayal of women and women's bodies in the media.

"Every woman out there has those lines of insecurity, and they continue to grow because we allow them to," Coffman explained.

"Part of the reason that media has such a huge impact is because we let it."

Coffman hopes that her project inspires people to stop judging other women based on their size.

"Internalized misogyny is such a huge problem," she said.

"Often times you'll hear women call each other fat or sticks or slutty, which not only gives men the permission to treat us the same way we treat each other but it gives permission to the media to treat us that way too."

"We are so much more than the bodies we live in," Coffman said.
