#Empowerista: Ariel Winter

For this week's #empowerista, Alex Wehrley celebrates Modern Family actress, Ariel Winter, who stood up to body-shaming bullies like a boss. When an innocent photo of the 17-year-old with her two nieces led to demeaning comments on Instagram, Ariel took the opportunity to stand up for herself and women everywhere. Plus, we dive into a related social media movement, #NotADistraction, inspired by high school girls standing up to their administrators for a dress code that unfairly targets females. Both Ariel and the girls of #NotADistraction make a similar point--women are oversexualized, and it's not okay that they are often blamed and shamed for what they wear.
