Week 14 Blog Post

The presentation I chose to respond to this week was done on Monday, about the gender roles in social media, more specifically the group looked at instagram. Whats stuck with me about the presentation was when they compared the famous woman models instagram page, to a guys instagram page, the content and amount of followers were significantly different. The girls page had her modeling in her bikini in some places, her looking really beautiful with a lot of makeup on. Where as the guys page had no photos of himself really, but of guy things like cars and landscapes. They concluded to say that women are often target more attack sexually, online, for many reasons. Also that women will be judged more sexually based on what they post rather than guys, and people shouldn’t be stereotyped by gender or race.
