Transcript of Miss Representation
Miss representation is a documentary about how the mainstream media contributes to the under-representation of women in influential positions by circulating limited and often disparaging portrayals of woman. Here is the trailer for the documentary
These are the questions and awnsers from the documenatry.
1. In General, what, if anything, did you learn from the film?
I did not learn anything from the film. If anything i found it disturbing because the feminists hide behind an ideology witch has been proven wrong on many bases and many more things that they don't talk about in this documentary.
But i believe in equal rights, everyone should be treated equally and get paid as much.
gender does not matter to me, it is the person that i focus on and i don't care if you are a boy or a girl, everyone has the same amount of respect from me.
2.how much media do you (and your family and friends) consume in a day and what
is the media telling you about what it means to be a woman or a man ?
Me Personally, i use the social media about 2-3 hours a day, I play a lot of video games and that
might be around 4-5 hours a day. That is not basically a social media, its more like a platform for media.
The social media is based on many things. It all depends on the person it self, if the person belives everything they see on the internet for an excample. Me personally, i can see the difference between the true or false threats on the internet and what is right or wrong. I don't often let the social media effect my personal opinion or change my mindset on things.
3.The film argues that harmful representations of women persist because the media user hypersexualize images to spell products/ ideas/ service. Who or what benefits from the misrepresentations of women in the media?
who holds responsibility?
Nobody but the company itself benefits from the misrepresentations of women as they are the only ones getting profit. I believe that the individual should always hold sole responsibility for what they think, do or consume, because who else should? as for kids, it should always be parent/s or legal guardian.
4.Cory Booker describes men as “emotionally
constipated” and Jane Fonda says it’s important for
young boys not to separate their heart from their head. Do you feel it is important for men to show emotion? What is at stake if they do? How can we encourage a world where it is ok for men and boys to fully express their emotions?
I feel it is important for men to show emotions. I myself am a male and it is necessary to show people around you how you feel and open yourself. We cant encourage the whole world that it is ok for male to express their feelings but i believe that i can influence my actions on the people near me and hope they do the same by not being afraid of talking about my emotions and how i feel.
