Subconscious Effects of Media
Jennifer Siebel Newsom Keynotes - The Jennifer Siebel Newsom keynotes speak on gender and the media's effect on our perceptions....
She believes that our culture and marketplace devalues women, while continuing to expand opportunities for men and boys. Media is the most powerful messenger and children are especially vulnerable to these messages. Subconsciously, adults and children take in these messages and in turn can drastically change what we perceive as right and wrong, and how certain genders are suppose to act or think. She believes that the media is killing girls' ambition and ultimately defining what they will be when they grow up, while also destroying empathy and emotion in boys and men.
Most of what we see and hear in the media comes from a male perspective and this has to change. Women are far more valuable then how they're portrayed in our culture.
