What’s Wrong With Society
Helen Wright, headmistress of an independent girls’ boarding school in Wiltshire has her view on this and says it is all summed up by covergirls in underwear.
Her views are published in full in this report in the Daily Mail. Here’s an extract.
Kim Kardashian is the poster girl for ‘almost everything that is wrong with Western society’, according to a leading headmistress.
The reality TV star is part of a culture that glorifies women’s physical appearances over their character, claims Dr Helen Wright, head of a private girls’ boarding school.
In a speech tomorrow, Dr Wright will show Miss Kardashian posing in her underwear on the cover of men’s magazine Zoo.
The headline, from an edition last month, praises Miss Kardashian as ‘the hottest woman in the world’.
‘It is not too strong a statement, I venture to suggest, to say that almost everything that is wrong with Western society today can be summed up in that one symbolic photo of Miss Kim Kardashian on the front of Zoo magazine,’ Dr Wright will say.
‘The descent of Western civilisation can practically be read into every curve, of which, you will note, there are in-deed many.
In the 1960s, girls like Miss Kardashian, were generally labelled by that wonderfully complimentary term, scrubbers.
But then it has always been thus. At present, I’m watching Royal Ascot and a Royal historian has said that it was the place where George IV went to show off his mistresses.
There has always been a class of woman, who felt the quickest way to the top, was lying on their back, with their legs in the air and their knickers, if any, around their ankles.
