Final Project Proposal

I am choosing to research about the portrayal of women in the media for my final project. I am planning on researching about women from the perspective that women are over-sexualized in the media. I am going to delve into gender stereotypes that we observe in society today. I hope to uncover certain emotions that are felt from these stereotypes. I plan to investigate various advertisements, magazines, videos, and personal experiences to provide evidence for my claim. I am eager to examine studies and advertisements about body image as well. I chose this topic for my final project because I have several personal experiences that go hand-in-hand with this field of study and I am fascinated by the extensive research that’s already been done.
