Introduction

Through this collaborative blog we aim to explore the portrayal of the female body through various visual media under the lens of feminism. The portrayal of women in the media has altered dramatically over the last century developing how female’s are seen by a largely patriarchal society, there is a far more sexualized view that is a far cry from the conservative nature of the past. Each blog post aims to address this shift in perception from different media giving varying representations of the female form. Cinema, music, advertising and magazine publication will all be explored in order to discuss just how the female body has been molded to become a sexual object to satisfy a male gaze.
