This is one thought-provoking SoulPancake series. It’s called ‘Bita: American Girl.’ Bita goes around asking people about questions we think are ordinary but really reveal how much culture influences us. Things we think that “everyone does” because everyone we know does it are really culturally based; other people can be very different. Bita made this point with clothes when she asked people if they would rather their daughters wore booty shorts or a Burka.
Here’s the description of the video:
Booty Shorts or Burka? If you could only choose between booty shorts and a Burka, which would you wear? In this episode of “Bita: American Girl,” our hilarious and fearless host tries on both identities to shatter the myth that extremes in our culture can’t connect. This video is all about celebrating a woman’s right to choose whatever her truth is. And besides, don’t you want to just ask people… why are you wearing that?
This video will definitely make you think!
I mean, we all know that people dress differently in various cultures, but Bita really makes you think about what that means and the implications of it. Check out the video!
