Mayim Bialik, best known as Amy Farrah Fowler of "The Big Bang Theory," thinks empowerment should not be defined by a woman's physique or ability to showcase her body to make others feel liberated. In a video uploaded on her personal YouTube channel, the actress admitted she used to dream of having a nice body in order to meet with the society's idea of being a woman.

Why is everyone getting naked?

The 41-year-old actress and neuroscientist said she has been seeing a lot of plus-sized models "taking their clothes off in the name of empowerment." While there is nothing wrong with being proud and confident of your body in this world's skinny obsession, Mayim Bialik emphasized that there is no need to get undressed to feel empowered or to inspire other women to embrace their curves.

"I think the trap that we're falling into is that we start to equate empowerment, not with strength or intelligence or confidence, but with sexiness," the personality said. "So even if you are an athlete or an actor or a scientist or any kind of accomplished, intelligent woman, the message that we are sending, especially to young girls, is above all else be sexy."

"The Big Bang Theory" star continued that getting naked has become the basis to be called an empowered woman, which she said should not be the case. Mayim Bialik emphasized that she has nothing against women who pose naked for magazines.

She, however, thinks that these things might confuse young girls who are looking up to these models or personalities. The mother-of-two said personalities posing nude are seeking to be admired by a society that has set a standard of beauty.

'Element of responsibility'

Mayim Bialik said adults should be responsible in showing to young girls that "sexiness is not the end all and be all" of their existence of a woman. She stated that younger generation should be reminded that they are special and amazing regardless of their body shape or size.

The "Blossom" actress added young girls should be "[encouraged] not to fear their bodies and sexuality," and be reminded of their right to say no whenever they feel like saying it. Mayim Bialik underlined that women should be respected regardless of what she is wearing or how she acts.

The award-winning actress ended her speech with a reminder that "getting naked is not the only way to feel empowered as a beautiful person," adding that true empowerment means seeing and treating women with equality.
