The Undue Emphasis on Women’s Appearance in the Media

Room G05, Hui Yeung Shing Building, Chinese University of Hong Kong, New Territories

Wednesday, October 28, 2015
Registration Deadline: 27th Oct 2015

About the Event: Women make up only 28.3% of characters in family films, 38.9% in prime time programs, and 30.8% in children’s shows.  And when females do feature on screen, they are almost four times as likely as males to be shown in sexy attire.  In this public lecture, Madeline Di Nonno, CEO of the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media, will share research findings on global trends on how women are portrayed in the media, the social and cultural implications this can have, and the actions we can take to influence positive change.
