Gossip Cop quotes Jersey Shore’s JWoww on posing for Maxim magazine’s January 2012 issue as being “probably my highest accomplishment.”
My immediate reaction is of ridicule, but we have certain definitions of success that (hopefully) change a bit as we age, huh?
I remember when I was in my twenties that getting a part in a show or just imaging my big dreams of landing a part in a movie coming to fruition were my biggest aspirations.
It’s interesting what we see as being our highest accomplishments when we’re in our twenties, isn’t it?
It’s a bit sad that many women (the old me included) see appearing on a magazine cover in a bikini as our greatest achievement.
I know though that there are many women who do not need the hindsight of experience to realize there are many greater aspirations.
The question maybe should be, what can we do as a society to encourage women to hold greater dreams from their childhoods forward?
