"How the Media Failed Women in 2013," courtesy of Miss Representation. This is mind-boggling and you must watch it right now.
Why is Rihanna included? otherwise good I’d say
It is all too common that women are discriminated against in media, but, as atrocious as this is, I do understand it from an advertising/marketing standpoint. Some businesses cater to lustful men, because tragically, they are so common in our society. What is more appalling however, is discrimination women face within our government. I know that this is only a sample of some events and cannot subject all men in “power,” but merely the fact that things like this are still being said represents “the government“‘s reluctance to progress.
As much as I see the common theme of laziness in our generation, I also recognize that we represent passion for tolerance and equality. When the people of our generation are in power, I hope that they have carried the latter with them through the pathway of their family’s governmental legacy to Hartford and onto the White House.
