Female Sexual Exploitation in the Media

The African Center for Community Empowerment (ACCE) Girls PRIDE Project will host a Healthy Relationship Workshop on “Female Sexual Exploitation in the Media”. Our focus will be on how young women are portrayed in the media.

The media, music, and advertisements play roles in the sexist and demeaning ways we think about and treat women—all to appease men.  We hear it in song lyrics, watch it on TV, and view it on social media.  As a result of our interviews with young women, these images convey powerful messages about women’s roles, their sexual and gender identities, and their self-concepts.  Images of women conveyed by the dominant culture are often based on distortions and stereotypes that legitimate the status quo at the same time they falsely represent the actual experiences of women in society.

This is an interactive workshop geared towards males and females between the ages of 11-24 years old.
