Feminist Eyes- Changing the Image of Women in Music Videos?

Today I read this article from the Washington Post after my professor mentioned it: http://www.washingtonpost.com/wp-dyn/content/article/2010/03/12/AR2010031203929.html Debra Lee from BET wants to improve the images of Black women that are typically seen in music videos. I found this very amazing because for the longest time the images shown of women were ones that would that objectify them. I…See More

Feminist Eyes- An Introduction to My Blog Series

Hi. I am introducing a new blog series about feminism in today's world. There are so many misconceptions about feminism and what is, but in the simplest definition, feminism is equality for everyone, men and women. Feminism is still relevant today because discrimination and inequality still exist in the year 2010. It's everywhere. Many people believe in equality but are afraid of the word feminist because of all the negative stereotypes. The most common one I've heard is that feminists hate men…See More
