How the media portrays women – one for men to listen to in particular

Summary

This is one of the most powerful talks I’ve ever heard on this subject – one in particular for male readers of this blog

Have a look at this talk by Gail Dines which Nicola Morgan tipped off Puffles about. It’s 15 minutes long but worth taking the time to listen to as it covers a lot of ground but very succinctly and in a hard-hitting manner at the same time.

It makes the case much more powerfully than I did in my last blogpost about why the corporate media (and how it portrays women) needs to be tackled if we are to tackle the problems of violence against women – as well as violence inherent in our society.
