Miss Representation

Leave a comment

The media is very gender divided when it comes to mostly everything. When you look at girls in most movies, all they ever wear are low cut shirts or shorts with boobs hanging out or their butts showing. We are always considered to be the hot ones. Men show their bodies but not as much as woman have to it seems like. I really enjoyed the video we had to watch in class. I have never really paid attention to the media like that before but now that we watched that i can see how many shows and movies even magazines and books. They all portray us as objects. When it the video showed the statistics of different things i was shocked. You don’t realize how big of an issue or problem you could say this is. Women are sexy but we are so much more than that. Guys need to open their eyes and realize that. When the girls at the beginning spoke it was very hurtful. When the one talked about her sister and the issues she went through and what she did to fix it or take the pain away. How sad that is. We should never be put in positions to make us feel less than important because all of us are. We are all beautiful in our own ways. We don’t need the media telling us how to look.
