Life & Anth, Episode 5: “Your Scars and You”


Keep on the lookout for Life & Anth, Episode 5, Your Scars and You,

with Zoomcatchers host, Lily Forrester! 


Last episode, Less is More,” Lily discusses changes in women’s fashion over time as well as the changes in the conversation that surrounds it. Lily broke down various socio-political narratives that are applied to women’s dress and examined the impact it has or doesn't have on the empowerment of women, so be sure to give that a listen.


Next episode, Lily looks not at clothing, but at the body itself and the story it inadvertently and inevitably tells.
