I think what you mean is "every woman has the right to be objectified."
it's an oddly mixed message . . .

re: acm. Generally the rule is that it's not objectifying if your knees remain covered.

But of course you are right that the message is mixed. It's about beauty but also disfiguring injuries. It's about strength and courage but also sadness.
