Portrayal of Women in the Media

28.05.2015 / Created by (EMWF)

The report points out the always important gap between women' s life today and their place and portrayal in the media, as well as the persistence of stereotypes. It seeks to understand why and how theportrayal of womenchannelled by the media does not correspond to the actual place of women in society. Along with the analysis and responsibility of the media (television, radio, press), it examines three fundamental challenges of women' s modernity: access to work and knowledge; the articulation of professional and family lives; and childcare; in short, the relation between body and desire.
