Bobby Pins Up Your Nose: Asian American Women Speak Out About Body Image by Christina R. Chan and Judy Tso

Bobby Pins is a performance piece that focuses on the universal issue of body image and conveys the message we are beautiful the way we are.

This piece was inspired by discussion resulting from the Brookline Adult Community Education Program on the Myths and Realities of Being Asian American and Female in February 2001 by Judy Tso. During the talk, several women bonded over the common experience of their mothers massaging their noses to make their bridges higher or of putting clothespins or bobby pins on the nose for the same reason. To us it seemed clear that women and girls where trying to achieve a notion of beauty that was imposed from the outside. A European standard.
