Lindsay Kite and Lexie Kite, 26-year-old identical twin sisters finishing their PhDs in Communication at the University of Utah, study representations of female bodies in popular media. Their website is Beauty Redefinied - spurned out of their passion for helping girls and women recognize and reject harmful messages about their bodies and what “beauty” means and looks like.
Their most recent blog post titled Why "Fitspiration" Isn't So Inspirational takes a hard look at the seemingly well meaning advirtisements meant to 'inspire' women to achieve fitness goals.
Ellie Gordon-Moershel interviewed Lindsay Kite about their interesting blog post and the work of Beauty Redefined.

More people are reading rabble.ca than ever and unlike many news organizations, we have never put up a paywall – at rabble we’ve always believed in making our reporting and analysis free to all. But media isn’t free to produce. rabble’s total budget is likely less than what big corporate media spend on photocopying (we kid you not!) and we do not have any major foundation, sponsor or angel investor. Our only supporters are people and organizations -- like you. This is why we need your help.
If everyone who visits rabble and likes it chipped in a couple of dollars per month, our future would be much more secure and we could do much more: like the things our readers tell us they want to see more of: more staff reporters and more work to complete the upgrade of our website.
We’re asking if you could make a donation, right now, to set rabble on solid footing.
