Abstract / Description

Popular culture shapes us in many ways, and concerns have been raised about ‘sexualised’ messaging in TV and film, advertising, magazines, gaming, music videos and social media. In mainstream media, women are often depicted as submissive objects for heterosexual male consumption and regular exposure to sexist stereotypes has been linked to depression, low self-esteem and eating disorders, as well as sexualised attitudes and behaviours in young people, primarily girls.
