Why are women misrepresented in the media?

"The Media is the message as well as the messenger"

Tonight on Emerge365 the hosts will explore how mainstream media contribute to the under-representation of women in influential positions by circulating limited and often disparaging portrayals of women. In a society where media is the most persuasive force shaping cultural norms, the collective message that our young women and men overwhelmingly receive is that a woman’s value and power lie in her youth, beauty, and sexuality, and not in her capacity as a leader.
