Presentations

I think the presentations were pretty intersting this week. I had heard of Title IX, but never new that it was so encompassing. I was one of those who had heard the negative comments from the journalists that didn’t understand it. I thought it was really informative.
I did also enjoy the presenation on media portrayal of women across the world. It was interesting to see how different cultures had such different values and ideas on what is considered beautiful. I noticed that unfortunately women are treated as not enough, and that seemed to be pretty universal. Many of them were told they were not good enough because they had to be an object, or needed makeup and so forth. I thought that sad that it seems to be fairly universal how there are so many degrading and damaging media messages towards women. Many also towards young girls.
