Empowerment Inspire and Succeed! Media Abuse Statistics When women told the men that they wanted to be in the media the men let them. However the way that women were potrayed was extremly sexist. Women are very rarely the main charecter, they are always the damsel in distress or prize for the male protaganist. Movies, TV, etc Let's pick an example. Carly from the "Transformers: Dark of the Moon" for instance. Carly is a classic example of women in the media. Carly spends the whole movie kidnapped waiting to be rescued and even when she is rescued she just stands in one spot and stares at the mayhem. Example Exploitation In the news for girls the first thing a critic will criticize is a womans looks. Breaking news could consist of a major catastrophe or what Brittany Spears was wearing on a date. Yet if Bill Murray has mental breakdown its not on the news. News If you look at the news nowadays you will find that not many woman are telling the news. There are plenty of women that the news is about but not many achorwomen.

American teenagers spend more than 10 hours a day consuming media, most of it filled with content that objectifies women and distorts their bodies. 53% of 12 year old girls feel unhappy with their bodies, 78% of 17 year old girls feel unhappy with their bodies and 65% of women and girls have an eating disorder. . Body . . . Messages Turning a human being into a thing is almost always the first step towards justifying violence against that person 1 in 4 women will be abused by a partner in their lifetime. 1 in 6 women are survivors of rape or attempted rape. . If women spent a tenth of the time thinking about how to solve the world’s problems as they think about their weight…we could solve them in a matter of months . . Quotes People with clenched fists can not shake hands There are two ways of spreading light ...
To be the candle, or the mirror that reflects it. . Remove those 'I want you to like me' stickers from your forehead
and, instead, place them where they truly will do the most good --
on your mirror! . Face Facts On the news More Quotes People are like stained-glass windows. They sparkle and shine when the sun is out, but when the darkness sets in, their true beauty is revealed only if there is a light from within. . Courage is like a muscle. We strengthen it with use. . If you do not tell the truth about yourself you cannot tell it about other people. . It's not what you call me, but what I answer to. .
