Year 10 Representation Homework 2 - Due 16th Oct

In 300-500 words analyse the following statements. Use a range of examples to back up your analysis. Make sure you include your own opinion.

In many rap videos women have no identity except as sexual playthings and "eye candy"

These images do provide pleasures to some viewers. But the concern is that men may internalise the notion that women are nothing more than sexual objects waiting to be used.

These sorts of images are not unique to hip hop. Objectified female bodies are everywhere. They appear throughout our culture in films, advertisements, television programmes etc. However, within music videos, this is virtually the ONLY vision of women available.
