Sexual assault, like other forms of physical violence, is a criminal offence that should not be excusable in any way. If a person were shot, stabbed, beaten or strangled, their...

As far as we may have come in equality when it comes to human rights in general, stereotypes are still strong. What a woman’s role, and in turn a man’s role, in day to day life is strongly assumed. A woman is expected to be a mother first and a functioning member of society second. A man is the...

If we want to fight against sexism and make this world an equal place, we have to take a few preliminary measures. To make this objective a reality, we have to start at the core. It`s by eliminating stereotypical concepts from the media that we change the unconscious mentally of our generations, if it`s not too late, and other generations to come. We can`t let people think that only one gender is attributed to a job. This can work equally for men than for woman. That means that a woman can be president and a man can stay at home to take care of the children.

In 2010, there were 3,198 reports of sexual assaults processed by the Department of Defense in the American army. Out of all of those, there were only 244 convictions. By watching a documentary The Invisible War (2012) dedicated to opening our eyes towards the hidden rape culture within the U.S. military, I wondered about how many women have been raped, tried to talk about it and only ended up having even more problems.

I’m all for equality and such but I’m sick and tired of men being labeled as evil savages whose sole purpose is to ruin the lives of women. Not all men are like this and yet we are constantly being portrayed as the essence of pure evil. I’m not saying there aren’t men like that in the world but it’s certainly not a majority and it doesn’t only include men.  We are constantly bombarded with messages of how men are all criminals, very rarely do we not see a man on the news followed by a title related to murderer and/or rapist.  There are good people out there, in fact more than you think.

      People often complain that the video game industry produces too many games with a male protagonist. The said hero would often come to the rescue of a damsel in distress or have a vulnerable female side-kick to help him out. When casting a female protagonist, she is often over sexualized, wearing skimpy clothing and falling into the category of a “femme fatale”. What they don’t know is, game developers have recently created games starring female leads with an average look, an intricate background story and the capability to handle things themselves.

All over the world, in all types of media, we use women’s bodies to sell things to men. (Also know as women objectification) We use women as an object in media which is completely immoral.
