Miss Representation

“The most common way people give up power, is by thinking they don’t have any” – Alice Walker

I just feel as thought this is truly an important matter, how Women are portrayed in the media. One major thing that struck my brain in my first week of College at the University Of Michigan, was to understand that indeed the media is a fun house mirror …. how and what we view is completely controlled by gate keepers … these people who predetermine what is and is not beautiful / hot/ sexy/ appealing/ etc.
We see things in the media each and everyday, that influences the way you think … most of the time you don’t even realize how you are being influenced … !
