Representation of Women In the Media
The Conversation about women’s bodies exists largely outside of us, while it is also directed at (and marketed to) us, and used to define and control us. The Conversation about women happens everywhere, publicly and privately.
An examination of past Olympic Games television coverage shows notable differences in the way sports commentators talk about athletes, depending upon the athletes' races, gender and nationalities.
June 18, 2012 — An examination of past Olympic Games television coverage shows notable differences in the way sports commentators talk about athletes, depending upon the athletes' races, gender and nationalities. Two studies by University of Delaware professor James Angelini published this month in academic journals show particular biases.
A tipster forwarded us this new editorial from the fashion magazine Pop , which features 17-year-old 16-year-old model Hailey Clauson, a porn star identified as "Destiny," an unnamed nude woman, and an unidentified man who in one picture is shown with his hands around Clauson's neck. To call this editorial "disturbing" is an understatement. The spread, which was shot by photographer Tyrone Lebon and styled by Max Pearmain, alternates bizarrely between brightly-lit studio shots against candy-colored backgrounds, and pseudo-Terry Richardson sexploitation with Clauson posing with porn stars in a white-walled room.
Mattie Ross is the star of the award winning film True Grit . She is a remarkable character being cast as a strong, tough, independent, and determined young woman.

Mattel’s Barbie never had her own kids, but the toy company isn’t opposed to procreation. In fact, it has now envisioned girl offspring from well-known supernatural figures–and molded them into doll form.
The top international modeling agency Women has copped to an oopsie: its most promising new face of the season, a girl by the name of Valerija Sestic who has already walked for 16 of the biggest designers at New York fashion week, is underage. In a season when all modeling agencies made a pledge not to put girls under 16 forward for runway work, Women lied. Sestic is 15.
Meet Your New Boss Jane , June/July 2004 Thousands of pretty young women are obsessed with American Apparel’s T-shirts. Some even make out with its idol-like founder.
UPDATE: On September 14, American Apparel's creative director announced that Upton will be excluded from the list of contest winners due to mocking "the positive intentions of the campaign." Someday, I’ll look back on all of this and have a hard time remembering how my project really came into being. But I firmly believe no amount of distance will ever make me forget the anxiety I experienced the first time I saw the phrase “Booty-Ful.”
I’ve owed everyone THE blog post about my trip to American Apparel for quite awhile now. Honestly, I haven’t been entirely sure what to say. The trip was incredible, with or without the tour. I got to see a ton of interesting people- models, designers, old friends- and do a lot of fun things.
