The "Us Weekly" feature "Who Wore It Best" should be ceased or renamed because it perpetuates the harmful perception that women should be compared to other women. In this feature, readers vote on which of two celebrities looks better in the same outfit, thus pitting one woman against another, as if competing in a popularity or beauty contest. Instead, why can't both women be recognized as looking great and be featured in a more positive setting, such as "Great Minds Think Alike?"

While it may not be its intent, "Who Wore It Best" creates a contest that results in the celebration of one body shape, skin color, face, hair and/or other attributes over another. Imagine the hurt of a teenager when a celebrity to whom she relates is considered to be the loser in the comparison. 

Today's society has become a pressure cooker for females, who cannot escape judgment about female attractiveness on social media and in television, movies and magazines. The comparison mentality is not one that should be perpetuated in 2019 and beyond. It is sexist and unhealthy to readers and enforces the belief that women should be judged first and foremost on their looks.

This is an easy fix to an outdated journalism model.
