Check out our Clearinghouse Connector archive. Objectification is the process of representing a person as an object to be owned or consumed, rather than as a person in their own right. Examples include: the use of women’s bodies and body parts to sell productsimages which only show parts of women’s bodies, ordepictions of women as inanimate objects for consumption. The objectification of women through media and advertising can be internalised and has far-reaching implications for women’s body image, physical and and mental health.

Barack Obama wore same tuxedo for eight years, Michelle Obama reveals. Posted Former first lady of the United States Michelle Obama has revealed that Barack Obama wore the same tuxedo for all eight years of his presidency, without anyone noticing. In a speech at an Apple developers conference, Ms Obama was making a point about the double standards women in the spotlight face, when she made the revelation. "Now, people take pictures of the shoes I wear, the bracelets, the necklaces - they didn't comment that for eight years he wore the same tux, same shoes," she said.
"This is the unfair thing - you talk about Fred Astaire and Ginger Rogers - no matter what we do, he puts on that same tux. " Ms Obama said her husband was "proud" of his ability to wear the same suit and be ready in 10 minutes. During her time as first lady, Ms Obama's fashion sense was the subject of thousands of articles, analyses and tweets. Her choice to wear a sleeveless top in her first official photo as first lady caused an uproar in the United States. Topics: fashion, feminism, united-states. Keeping women in their place: Objectification in advertising. As Subtle as the Pose Written by Jennifer Moss.
About ten years ago when the internet bubble popped, I took up a new career to pay the rent. I had a good camera back before everyone had one on their phones. Fortunately I was in L.A., so I hung out my shingle and started doing headshots and model portfolios and was fairly decent at it. I was eventually published. I worked with many beginning models, some of whom eventually “made it” in the fashion industry. But the more I learned about the industry, the more I loathed to participate in it. For one, I found that there is only one body type acceptable for females in standard fashion modeling: 5’10”-5’11”, 34-24-34 (bust-waist-hips, in inches). Another thing that disturbed me was that the top agencies were hiring women younger and younger. My clients that were new to the industry were sweet, lovely girls with good old 1940’s stars in their eyes. So what’s in the title of this post? She is set up for sex: lying supine or close to it.

An 'ugly selfie' campaign by the 'Ugly Girls Club' I've lost count of times men (and some women) have conflated my feminist views with my appearance. Naturally, my interest in the liberation of women has nothing to do with the securing of dignity, equal respect and equal opportunities and everything to do with the fact Old Mate propping up the bar on Parma Night doesn't want to have a ride on me. I've even been told that the reason I care so much about rape culture is because no one would ever want to rape me. And while I can't remember the first time I was ever called ugly, I remember the last because it happened only a few days ago.
In a comment left on my Instagram account, an anonymous user's long screed against 'strong feministic [sic] views' included the following: "I gotta ask, when was the last time you had your clit tickled, or when you had a mammoth cock pierce up through your virgin smelly anal passage, or when a guy doggy styled you so hard you finished up in tears? Ad challenges insulting "like a girl" phrase in powerful video. What does run "like a girl" mean? Photo: YouTube If you’ve ever used the phrase ‘like a girl’ as an insult, you might want to rethink what it actually means.
A new video from an American feminine hygiene brand seeks to change the way we use the phrase and turn it into something powerful rather than derogatory. It’s a tough message, showing how harmful the phrase ‘like a girl’ can be when used as an insult. Advertisement In the short video, men and women of varying ages are asked to act out various tasks, but “like a woman”. When they run, they flick their hair and flail their arms about. The next group to act out the same actions are young girls. Director Lauren Greenfield asks the older participants what they think using ‘like a girl’ does to a young girl at her most vulnerable point, the start of puberty. “I think it really drops their self-confidence and really puts them down,” one of the older female actors says, “because during that time they’re already trying to figure themselves out.”
Online Hate Prevention Institute » FAH Launch Event: Sydney 2014. The evening before International Human Rights Day, the Online Hate Prevention Institute will be holding a public event to launch “Fight against Hate” an online tool for reporting and monitoring online hate and bigotry. The Hon Paul Fletcher MP, Parliamentary Secretary to the Minister for Communications, will launch the new tool, which will dramatically change the game in public efforts against online hate and bigotry in social media.
“Fight Against Hate” will provide an independent means for people to report online hate speech and communicate and work with others who are pushing back against growing online hate. The new tool will also build a user-generated database of online hate speech which NGOs, academic researchers and governments will be able to use as a basis for research and to inform public policy. Further information is available for social media users, NGOs and researchers, and government agencies. Briefing information for the media is also available.
Date Time 6pm-8pm Venue. The one basic thing men still don't seem to understand about women. There’s a particularly knotty theme that keeps working its way into my writing lately, a cultural force that assumes so many different forms in so many different realms that it took me until just now to connect them all. The issue is women’s right to set their own boundaries, and to live with the confidence that those boundaries are inherently powerful and credible, not questionable and permeable—because women are people, not passive extensions of men. Women’s boundaries came up a month ago in the Guardian, when I wrote about a subway lothario who claimed to have gotten “over 500 dates” by pestering women who were trapped with him in an enclosed space. It came up again last week in my column about pick-up artist Julien Blanc, who was kicked out of Australia for teaching men that sexual assault is a “seduction” tactic.
Now tell me we don’t have a cultural block when it comes to women’s humanity. But the public response to my writing lately has said just that. OK, guys.
