I did the "This I Believe" challenge and I wrote an essay under 500 words about something I believe in (strongly). I believe in lots of important things, but for this Essay, I wrote on how I believe that the internet and social media doesn't define who you really, genuinely are. Enjoy!
I focus particularly in how women are represented in the media and i analyzed themes such as: How the media present women as a sexual object? Is media creating social stereotypes of women? Who are the most affected? Is this “ideal” women represented by the media is harmful? The objectification of women in the media, especially advertising is giving a tremendous wrong impact in our society; mainly to young girls. The media is focusing in the women as sexual objects. Consequently, the media is creating stereotypes to represent women’s image, as “ideal”, this is affecting our society in the wrong way, most of young woman are following what they see without questioning; all these wrong ideas and pressures are bringing to our Young girls unhealthy and physical habits as well, such as eating disorder, depression, etc . This is a big problem, because the more the media is representing women as a sexual object the more audience are getting satisfy and as a result the audience is accepting it. That’s why; the media is disturbing our society in a very irreparable way.
