Are Women in the Media Only Portrayed As Sex Icons?

6 Dec

We’ve discussed in class on numerous occasions the differences in how men and women are portrayed in the media. This article discusses a couple of studies that point out how women are more likely to be portrayed as “sex icons” versus anything else.The article also discusses MissRepresentation and how it is good at pointing out the sexist media to women who may not have noticed.

“The media is a powerful instrument of change and change can only occur once we are able to see the type of force this tool has cast on society. It’s up to us women to use the force of media to influence positive change and correct the representation of women.”
