According to Yahoo on Dec. 2, 2013, a new mom posted a ‘selfie’ that is getting a lot of good and bad press. Once again, the line is drawn in the sand and this time Maria Kang is safe. This time it is all about fitness model and writer: Caroline Berg Eriksen, Caroline just had a baby four days before. She claims to have worked out daily and according to her blog she really watched her calories and workout routine. Just days after giving birth, she was thin. Not only thin and fit looking, but looked as if she hasn't given birth just days before.
Instead of saying good job to her or being inspired, many moms go on the attack. They call it an ‘act of war on moms’. A few experts even went so far to call it dangerous to a woman’s image. Twitter users called her picture everything from ‘a freak of nature’ to ‘unfair to all women’.
Overall, she is getting a lot of support. To date, she has over 24,000 likes on her amazing selfie. She is getting many comments like “great job”, “beautiful’, and “Rock it , girl’. They were right about one thing, there is a war on women now. However, the women that are being attacked and picked apart are women like Caroline and Maria Kang. The war is on the fit, healthy and outspoken woman. We need more women like these women to show our daughters and nieces what a ‘real’ woman looks like.
