Looks at how media and advertising have the power to change how people think about gender roles and, at the same time, help shape the way we view one another.
- Media and advertising play an important role in our culture, reflecting the social norms of our society – through television entertainment we have witnessed many female characters battle sexism and discrimination while men continued to be the hero of the story.
- Women are still too often portrayed as sex symbols or unattainable images of perfection and social media plays a big role in how young girls view themselves.
- Spending too much time on social media platforms has been associated with body image issues and eating disorders in teenage girls.
- With this much engagement on these platforms, we need to put an end to this unhealthy presentation of perfection and support content that will help girls feel good about themselves.
