Brief Description of the Event

Global media discourse provides an accessible, lively introduction into how globalization is changing the language and communication practices of the need.  Young girls and women face increasingly marginalized media portrayals worldwide, where they are often given conflicting images and information that affect body image and self identity that has ramifications in the socio-cultural and political spheres. Film and TV include commonly used tropes that box women into negative stereotypes as well as objectify and eroticize difference races and ethnicities that affect the way young girls, as well as boys, are brought up. However, media also has the ability to empower women. New media technologies like face book, tweeter and others have created a new generation of critical youth who are aware of the problems surrounding women and media discourse, and consider themselves responsible for checking those who continue to negatively stereotype women, as well as spread awareness in a global, virtual space.

The Fourth World Conference on Women, held in Beijing in 1995, addressed these issues, and two decades later, it is time to consider the changes that have occurred, and those that haven’t.
