41 In Summary Women victims are portrayed as LIARS Women victims are BLAMED Women are SEXUALIZED, OBJECTIFIED, DEHUMANIZED & DEGRADED Women portrayed as WEAK & SUBMISSIVE & SUBORDINATE to men


43 Lower’s women’s self-esteem Increases acceptance of rape-myths: Sexual assault is rare Sexual assault is an isolated event Sexual assault is largely perpetrated by strangers (Fairbrain & Dawson, 2013; Dowler, 2006.)

44 Leads to the impression that violence against women is an individual problem, not a structural, social issue this leads to inaction. (Fairbrain & Dawson, 2013; Dowler, 2006.)

45 Desensitizes men & decreases seriousness Increases negative attitudes towards women Increased aggression in men towards women (Fairbrain & Dawson, 2013; Dowler, 2006.)

46 BE INFORMED: Notice the stereotypes you see/hear in media Have conversations with youth about what they see/hear Support media/pop culture that values women
