John Berger

This is a quote from a video I was watching on youtube. I thought it was an interesting and amusing perspective.

"Men look at women. Women watch themselves being looked at.
this determines not only most relations between men and women
but also the relation of women to themselves. The surveyor of woman
in herself is male: the surveyed female. Thus she turns herself into an object –
and most particularly an object of vision: a sight.” John Berger

The spectator is often seeing a reflection of themselves perhaps...
