Objectification of women in media  

By: Anonymous - from the series of guest posts written by Dr. Baldwin's students at Michigan State University.

Do you ever notice that women get objectified as sex objects all the time, when men hardly are? Video games... how are women dressed? Provocatively. Clothing advertisements, such as A&F or even Guess... how are women dressed? Half naked or with bare midriffs or cleavage hanging out. Do you seen men portrayed this way very often? Women, please give me your input on this.

What next?

    As you can expect sex sells more. So Advertisers know that you can sell even more when the target audience is men.

    OK as a men of course I love this kind of images, but as a human being I understant that the best way to sell a product is putting a little bit of sex in the commercial campaign.
