Our group is going to look at the portrayal of women in the media.
Not only are women usually outnumbered by men, but the images they depict are often times stereotypical and inaccurate.  In the earlier years images of women were sexist.  Although there is less obvious sexism, convert sexism still exists in today’s media.  Also,  women are still portrayed as submissive, emotional, and weak, especially in television.
Our group plans to study these types of images in the media through video games, sports, politics, sexism in the media and television dramas.  Researching these categories of the media, we hope to develop a better understanding of why women are misrepresented and so heavily outnumbered by men in the media today.
