One thought on “Research Trends Assignment”

  1. What do you mean by “maybe?” : ) You can say more in the column here to clarify this. Women objectifying women –this category is interesting. Who are in charge of producing music videos? Do these articles blame women producers of music videos? Women viewers? Do all writers agree on what “objectification” means –? Videos “affect people’s opinions” of what? Interesting that one test used in one study, and several focus on college aged students. Do most focus on men? Do you see differences in men and women viewers?
