MediaFest 2009: The Sexualisation Of Culture?

In recent years a number of concerns have been raised about the sexualised representation of women in the media, in advertising, pop videos, and on the Internet. There have been moral panics about everything from Lady Gaga videos to the merchandising of Playboy stationery and toys to young girls, and in 2009 the government launched a review into the relationship between sexualisation and violence against women. In this session, we will go behind the headlines to explore whether and in what ways women are sexualised in the media with a panel of experts and interested parties, including an educationalist, an activist, a psychologist and an external independent reviewer of a report that will be submitted to the Home Office.
