Thursday’s Gender Thoughts: Take a look at this video posted by the Women’s Media Center. It shows how media representatives, specifically male news anchors, talk about women as nagging wives, cleavage possessors, castrating, and so forth. Not only is this offensive, but it is blatant sexism, which diminishes the value of women in politics, news, and businesses.
After viewing this, and hearing the comments made by these experts of the news, which is most offensive to you? How do you think this can be curtailed? What course of action? Are these YouTube Videos enough to create awareness and demand change in the way women are being represented by the media?
