Are Men Controlling Their Women’s Image Nowadays?

Two Sundays ago (Aug. 26), the world watched as Kanye West came in and redecorated Kim Kardashian’s entire closet in an episode of Keeping Up With the Kardashians. This, instantly, started a lot of conversation. Even though many people took this as an opportunity to take jabs at the pair, I looked at this scenario with a different perspective.

Kim’s closet consisted of her own individuality and tastes over the years, and now, all of a sudden, she lets her boyfriend come in and reorganize everything all because he deemed it necessary? As Rihanna stated in her now-infamous interview with Oprah, women are usually the ones giving their entire selves to men and the relationship. We often do everything we can to prove our love to a man. We cook. We clean. We (usually) put up with the lying and cheating. Are we even letting them change and revamp our image as well?
