Lecture series: Did the 1970s Women's Liberation Movement achieve all of its aims?

MEDIA REPRESENTATIONS OF THE FEMININE

The third session in this four part lecture series will document how the Women’s Liberation movement demanded an end to media representations of women and girls as sexualised objects. But has equality between the sexes really changed the way femininity is depicted in advertising, film or television? Or has the myth that a woman’s greatest power and asset lies in her sexual attractiveness to man not only persisted, but been amplified in recent decades?

Jennifer Drew (BA Women’s Studies and History) is an independent researcher on male violence against women. She is a consultant to Scottish Women Against Pornography, is an active member of the campaign group Truth About Rape and was formerly chair of Object, a campaign organisation focusing on women's rights. She has contributed articles to Rain and Thunder, a radical feminist journal of discussion and activism , The Fword, a contemporary UK Feminism on-line magazine and is a regular contributor to the Global Sisterhood Network, a research resource for feminists from around the world working together to improve women's lives.
