How do the media and its depiction of women and young girls affect the way men and women communicate with one another? What effects do the media have on the choices females in this culture make for themselves and their future? Is there a link between objectification and violence in interpersonal relationships? These are just some of the questions that will be discussed in this 1-hour presentation.
