Australian model Emily Sears has crafted an image, and a career, out of her sex appeal. But that doesn’t mean she’s the property of the voyeurs who love to comment on Instagram, nor the marketers and publishers who profit from her image.
In this frank episode, Nakkiah Lui and Miranda Tapsell, hosts of Pretty For An Aboriginal and both vocal social media advocates for women’s rights, talk to LA-based, Melbourne model Emily Sears about the begetting of power through provocative imagery, why sexy women are feared, and why sexy black women are feared even more.
