We unearth 2009’s Jennifer’s Body to examine its feminist legacy and failures, and have an in-depth discussion on the objectification of women’s trauma through multiple media sources. A decade later, we’re still reclaiming the word “salty” to mean beautiful (thanks, Diablo Cody).
CW: Discussions of self-harm, sexual violence, and emo rock’s history of women’s exploitation.
