And for you, what is the ideal female figure, as you imagine it?
Believe it or not, she doesn’t fit into the 90/60/90 standards. And the girl herself wears a short haircut, which is generally not generally considered something incredibly attractive. And yet this baby has every chance of becoming a new Marilyn Monroe for us.
Women in ancient Egypt enjoyed many freedoms that would take thousands of years for women to enjoy again. Ancient Egyptian society was sex-positive, and premarital sex was entirely acceptable. Women could own property independently from their husbands, and could initiate divorce from their husbands without shame. Women could even inherit titles, like Pharaoh!
Aristotle called the female form “a deformed male,” so yeah — ancient Greece was pretty male-centric. The ancient Greeks were more focused on the ideal male physique than women’s, meaning that it was the men of this time period, rather than the women, who had to live up to high standards of physical perfection. This sounds good, except that this meant women were body-shamed for not looking like men.
