Good quote

From an interview with Laurie Toby Edison mentioned in this journal entry by elisem:

Laurie Edison: In the Fifties, the models in magazines represented approximately twenty-five percent of the women. In the Eighties, when I was doing this work, we used to talk about how now the models in the magazines only represent nine percent of the women. Then we got to the nineties and computers, and now the models don't represent anybody.

Crescent Blues: Not even the models.

Laurie Edison: Exactly. So you've got these little girls trying to make themselves look like women who don't exist.
