After reading an article titled “Fantasies of Power” by Susan J. Douglas, I have opened my eyes to the media. I am 21 years old and many girls that are within ten years of my age girl up with the word “Feminist” changing into “Girl Power”. The popular girl group, Spice Girls, used this phrase over and over in their songs while wearing revealing clothing. The author states that the media has made females believe that using their bodies as sex objects places them in control over men while also making them happy. Only 4.2% of women hold position in the Fortune 500 CEO Positions. The media has tricked us through a technique called “Enlightened Sexism” which has made us believe that we have already achieved equality in the workplace. Women have started to believe that showing off our bodies is more important that attaining a leadership role. The word feminist has become a “man hating, child loathing, hairy, shrill” of a woman and has been replaced with the term girl power that makes women believe that looking hot and competing against other women is important. The media also shows countless television shows that make women and girls look like catty, boy loving nuts. Shows like Sorority Life and Spring Break Orgy Blow-Out have girls falsely believing that having men lick whip cream off of their bodies and fighting with other girls is more important than fighting for the right to have a CEO position. Even The Apprentice has shown women as being to “emotional” and ”catty” to work for Donald Trump. Women are starting to step away from what is really important. We are not equal with men yet when we are looked at as only important if we are young, white, and beautiful. Women need to stop worrying about their next boyfriend and focus on working their way up through the ladder at work because we deserve it just as much as the men.
