LatinitasMagazine.org - A Strong Voice for Latina Youth

Have you ever seen a commercial that has a woman half-naked or looking perfect doing ordinary things?

Well, they're probably photoshopped and have professional makeup, clothes, and digital editing. Even their hair is probably done after every shoot! Well, women in media are portrayed as objects and snotty/rude. Also, it shows women that dislike other women and their goal is to be more popular than them. To be happy, you have to be super-skinny and but a certain type of clothes at a certain place with certain friends who act a certain way.

 

I say we should take a stand, fight against these stereotypes and social pyramids! Fight against inequality in media! Write letter, talk to people who can change something, and just not watch the shows, read the books, listen to the musicthat does that!

If you have another idea on how to help, or if you just want to add on, comment!

Isabel you make some great points in this blog! Media usually doesn't portray women in the most positive way. It's really upsetting that most magazines don't promote being yourself, no matter what you look like. You are right it's our job as girls to recognize when the media is sending stereotypical messages and in response fight against them and try to change them! Great blog, me and Bethany love having you in our club!
