Feminist Guilty Pleasure: Priscilla Renea

So I was just watching MTV (don't judge me! I'm procrastinating on doing a huge pile of homework!) and saw this video come up between shows.

Ok, so it's a silly pop song, but I thought it would be a good addition to the relationship violence awareness Third Wave is focusing on this month!

A relationship where your partner tries to control your clothing (like in the song) or other aspects of your life can still be an abusive relationship. Relationship abuse does not just mean physical abuse and visible bruises. In fact, a lot of abuse is mental or emotional, and a lot of young women do not recognize this as abuse. It's important that women, especially teens and college-aged women who are normally entering their first relationships, understand the different types of abuse, how to spot it, and how to get out of these relationships.
