This is mainly due to gender norms which are presented to individuals within the gaming culture, this can have major consequences when it comes to the gender socialisation of individuals within society, as traditional gender roles wherein the female is viewed as subordinate are expected and rewarded. Therefore the portrayal of women as over-sexualised, objectified and subordinate to males depicts an inaccurate representation of female gender behaviour within video games. This can have serious implications within society as video games have become an agent within the development of identities in its players (Miller & Summers, 2007:734). Lande (1993), argues that individuals exposure to violence within video games may result in negative outcomes in relation to a small percentage of individuals who are deemed to be more impressionable and also vulnerable (Lande, 1993). Although it is only a small percentage of individuals in which this relates to, there can be significant consequences.
Especially younger girls who have access to the internet on a daily basis. Many people have female sin their lives that really matter to them.

Gender stereotypes have existed for thousands of years, however, this is now changing. Although women now have higher aspirations, gender stereotypes still exist, which is stopping women from achieving their potential.In the United States, males spend approximately 10 hours more at work compared to females. (Sharon Jayson, 2013) This is likely to be higher in less developed countries, where the unemployment rate is higher. Public figures such as Michelle Obama and Hillary Clinton, advocate gender equality, by giving motivational speeches to inspire women to stand up for themselves. They could have happily stayed out of the spotlight.
I suggest that the media institutions and firms, particularly marketers and advertisers, should consider business Ethics in the media, ethical aspects of the use of women and sexuality as a marketing instrument, and they may test how sexual and violent contents affects and influence viewers’ attitudes towards the media institutions. To conclude unethical media is huge problem that has many effects on both individuals and society, especially children. moreover it increased now by the appearance of the new technology and the internet. Many media institutions are violating the major ethical rules by using sexuality and violence. Given the fact that the media institutions use sexuality and violence as a marketing instrument in order to attract more viewers or consumers, it means that the media companies are trying to market themselves or their products at the expense of ignoring business ethics.

INTRODUCTION Intersectionality between multiple social categories such as gender, age, race, sexuality has received a considerable amount of attention during the past few years. This is so because more people are voicing out their oppressive experiences through national protests and social media platforms. Once the feminist thought of gender as a variable within the multiple social categories of identity consisting of being 'woman or female ' and 'man or male ' is no longer sufficient to encounter the multiple complexes of social discrimination that many women faces today. This suggests that identities are not created by a unit variable of social categories, but are created through multiple variables of social categories and experiences
From my own experience I have seen how women often treat each other badly. The concept of “mean girls” where rivalry groups are formed between females without a certain reason more than to state their authority and popularity over the other group. If this was the norm, that women do not support each other between social groups, this space is telling us something else. Nevertheless, the women that did comment on the post might all be in the same social group and therefore show their support. On the other hand, feminism has become an increased movement that has brought women (mainly not only) together all over the world to show support and fight for equal rights which could tell us that this space is working alongside with today's feminist movement.
Progress Of Women In The 1920 's and 30 's Back in the 1920 's women started becoming extremely significant in the society. Before then, women rarely found jobs that accumulated a high enough income to raise a family.

Social media plays a massive role in what it means to be a female, but especially what it means to be a so-called good mother. With women already under scrutiny from society whether it being the way she dresses, to the way she speaks, the ideology of the good mother is often portrayed as the ‘supermom’ who can “do it all” by herself, but what society doesn’t see is the behind the scenes of the day to day stress it can cause specifically if she is doing it on her own. If the workplace became a place to uplift women, but especially geared toward helping mothers reach the top of the ladder while being able to balance family life, it would help change others perspective on the ideology of the good mother. Julie Larson-Green quotes “There’s no such thing as work-life balance. There’s only life.” This quote perfectly sums up this article in saying that balancing work, and family can be one of the biggest deterrents for women to go into executive roles, and that since this is known large companies should be helping their mothers, not abandoning them.
Ellie Marcus Ms. Schackman Gender and Sexuality 15 January 16 Big Girls Don’t___ The objectification of women in shows from I Love Lucy to Toddlers and Tiaras lead many to believe that they must live up to society’s expectations.
