Media, the Internet and how Women are portrayed

Some great eye-opening video's and these are why we sat up took note and decided to share of these videos. Some are about and from America, but so much of our media culture is American it's difficult not to share the influences and see the parallels.  Also, with the "No More Page 3" campaign and a spotlight being shed on so called "Lads Mags", the Daily Sport etc. which are widely on display next to children's magazines in newsagents and supermarkets, it is becoming increasingly clear that the hyper sexualisation of women and girls by the media is getting out of hand.
