This Video Shows What Women Go Through As Their Bodies Change Through Life

Artist and animator Celia Bullwinkel has an admiration for the female body.

Through teenage years, pregnancy and old age, a woman's body has many incarnations.

It changes shape, gains weight and puts on curves. At some point, boobs spring out of nowhere and women have to learn how to wrangle them.

Bullwinkel's short video, "Sidewalk," shows the life of one woman in just over four minutes.

The woman struggles with her body and self-image, then seems to realize how trivial appearance is. Sometimes, it takes increased age to bring understanding.

The poignant clip won Best Animation at both the Pittsburgh Independent Film Festival and the Women and Minorities in Media Fest.
