Why does Western media exploit women? | The Stream

Discovery

Watch this discussion about Western media exploiting women.

According to the American Psychological Association, women and girls are depicted in a sexual manner in “virtually every medium”. A study carried out by Wesleyan University found that women featured in advertising campaigns, especially in men’s magazines, were presented as sex objects 76 percent of the time.

In this episode of The Stream, we’ll ask why the media treats women this way and look at what the broader impacts are for women’s health and safety.
