Women in the media


 

How women are portrayed in the media is an interesting and often complex topic with layers of internalized sexism. Obviously there are offensive and degrading representations of women, and media, like most of the industries, is dominated by men. Which means women aren’t often part of the decision-making process about media publications or ads.

This promo for the film Miss Representation talks with several inspiring feminists about what the problems are, what the consequences are and how we can change them.

As a woman who is also a part of the media I completely agree that it is vital to have more women in positions of power not only in the media, but also in government and regulating bodies.

I hope you enjoy this short video about Miss Representation, and that it can help bring about some thought-provoking conversation and hopefully some change in the media environment.
