Tue 18 October 2016, 6:30 PM – 8:00 PM HKT
She Objects explores global issues like the Thinness Ideal and its impact on girls’ self-esteem, the link between pornography and sexually coercive attitudes towards women, and the paucity of non-stereotyped roles for women on screen, in the Hong Kong context through three themes:
The media bombards us with airbrushed images of physical perfection which pressure women to pursue and conform to unrealistic beauty standards to an extent that often has a negative impact on women’s health and self-esteem.
Hypersexualisation of Women
The portrayal of women as sex objects encourages sexually permissive and coercive attitudes towards women.
The lack of positive female role models on screen encourages women and girls to lower their ambitions for themselves.
