Ariel Winter is back at it again with a body-positive message. 

On June 8, the “Modern Family” star posted a powerful illustration on Instagram that shows exactly why slut-shaming women for what they’re wearing is so problematic ― and plain absurd. The artwork was originally created by The Equality Institute and appears to have been updated by Stephanie Nemmer. The Equality Institute is an organization fighting for gender equality and preventing violence against women. 

Winter posted the illustration on Instagram, along with the hashtag #yourbodyisYOURS.

The illustration looks to be inspired by a 2013 photo taken by Canadian college student Rosea Lake that features a young woman’s legs with markings. Each marking reveals the varying judgements that are thrust upon women depending on their skirt length. The markings near the woman’s ankle and calf say “matronly” and “prudish,” while the markings that signal a shorter skirt read “whore,” “slut” and “asking for it.”

In the artwork Winter posted, all of these markings are crossed out to reveal a new statement that reads: “Someone that can do what the fuck ever they want with their body because skirt length does not correlate to how sexually available that person is regardless of how society teaches that we should be ashamed of our bodies.” 

On June 6, Nemmer tweeted that she “fixed” the original illustration. The tweet shows the before and after of Nemmer’s “fix.”

As of Friday afternoon, Nemmer’s tweet had received over 36,000 retweets and 47,000 likes.
