Men are being seen as more physical, and show less emotional and men are portrayed to dominate women.In female and also the LGBTQ they are held stronger opinions which could question some lack of diversity and how the direct impact is seen.

It is likely to increase the likelihood of sexual violenceIt’s true that women are objectified in music videos in rap/hip hop. It’s usually by the way that they are dressed, their male companion, and dancing in a sexual manner. Sometimes they may show the women’s body but not her face which suggest to me that her body is a showpiece and is put on display for everyone to see, so she’s got no identity and plays the role of a sex symbol.Powerful female characters in T.V. and film.Angelina JolieAngelina Jolie is the child of actors Jon Voight and Marcheline Bertrand.

Implications of stereotype and the possible social and psychological impact on audience.The representation of women in terms of age and occupation is seen as way more stereotypical than men’s channels than on women’s channels men are seen doing less household tasks for example which are on women’s channels.
Women are seen as people that are responsible for making everyday purchases. While men generally are seen in car advertisements, business products and services and/or investments, and they are always portrayed in an outdoor environment, whereas women are seen indoors advertising hair products, cleaning etc. If it was the other way round it wouldn’t be considered the norm, would people be offended or take no interest in these commercials for example if this had happened? Men are considered to be the head of the house and are financial providers, have a focused career and opportunities, whereas women are seen as a lower position, such as staying at home to raise the children while the men go out to work, doing house hold cleaning, cooking.If men and women appear to be in the same commercials together adverting the same thing, they would be presented as a couple.We should try and combat and break those stereotypes.Laura Mulvey TheoryShe is a feminist and she wrote an article in 1973. She came up with this theory which is still ongoing who came up with the term the male gaze. Which is what males are attracted to and females are seen as a sexual object.
The male gaze is in the perspective of a heterosexual man. Nothing has changed since. Directors may wan to challenge the representation of women but it never works. In the 70s they are seen as housewives, and now there are a lot of feminist groups who stand by power. Women are independent who want to do everything themselves. Of course the male gaze is presented in films/adverts in today sometimes they will use a actor and for the female in the same gaze to make people to try and buy the product.
They may do this so men feel more mainly for example in Lynx adverts they spray the lynx product and the women follow him around so they are trying to say that lynx would get you girls. An example of the male gaze would be James Bond films.She argues that it’s not about your sexuality it’s visually. Women were seem to be at home. They had to really challenge the idea of genre.
such as Marilyn Monroe in the 70s. such as showing skin., red lipstick, flirtatious. Scandalous rumours were going on. Visual pleasure Erotic characters for characters to view.Erotic objectsWomen expose themselves now like nothing but not back in the days, because people would think that it’s not ladylike. It may be seen as provoking.
Everyone is used to it now because there are nude models, it’s all over the place. I think that it will get worse, digital is very powerful because everyone can have access. Marlin Monroe was shamed back in the 70s for showing too much and they were never allowed to show this in those times.
She was the major sex symbol.
