Objectification, stereotyping and other damaging representations of women in media.
The vast majority of us around the world, are constantly bombarded by specific knowledge and information coming from the media. In this arena, women are constantly depicted as having much less privileges than men. Their identity is many times objectified, and certain characteristics and roles are presented either as 'intrinsic' or as 'normal' to their place in the world. These put them on disadvantaged grounds in our societies' social imaginary and consequently have a great impact on women's every day lives.
How is this a barrier for women's economic empowerment? How can we advocate for more realistic depictions on women in the media?
