Miss Representation

Leave a comment

The film, Miss Representation, brought light to how women are miss represented in the media. Many young girls see how women are portrayed in magazines and movies and become discouraged with how they look. Girls are taught by the media that nothing matters except what they look like and if they can attract a man. They start hurting themselves and using extreme measures to look as beautiful as the women in the magazines. This, however, is not possible. No one looks as beautiful as them. The models themselves do not even look like that because they are so photoshopped. I believe that we should be portrayed in a different way. There should be better role models for young girls in the media. Powerful, successful, and smart women, so they can have confidence in themselves and believe they can accomplish anything.
