The majority of the audience who consume this message are young girls, who see these messages and are influenced to act, dress, and look like these women. When young boys see these messages, they get the idea that women should just be valued for their looks instead of being valued for who they really are. Popular culture should do more to empower women instead of sexualize them. Media has been portraying women like this for a good while and I don’t think it will change anytime soon but, as a consumer we can make a difference by speaking out against these misogynistic portrayals and encourage others to be critical thinkers when confronted with these

Besides, the drapery fits more closely the shape of the body and enhances a more “wet” effect, and thus more conveys the figure’s sexuality and consequently her fertility, rather than her modesty. The stola, as we have seen in the Pudicitia type is to preserve the woman’s chastity as it fully covers her body. Whereas Agrippina is provided with a more transparent cloth that reveals the shapes of her body, betraying the shape of her breasts and hips. As said, the comparison of the Pudicitia and the Leftis type “would appear to bear out the contention that statue types were chosen which best expressed the values sought in different contexts.” In opposition with the Pudicitia, Agrippina’s body appears more on a open pose, not afraid of the viewer’s gaze and inquisition. She openly stands to be viewed, her identity to be investigated, recognized and acknowledged.

The new era showed that feminism has always been prominent and there has never been a time where a woman can’t be a strong, confident, and independent. Besides on screen media other social factors affect the way women see themselves. One huge figure that created the typical beauty standard was Barbie, perfect figure and beautiful she was marketed everywhere for young women to see. Even though Barbie is beautiful and represents a thin look it doesn’t express the right image for girls to hold as a
Next, Steve Harvey enters the scene as a celebrity endorser, humorously referring to his index cards as he apologizes for ‘being wrong again.’ He then points out that T-Mobile’s LTE coverage has actually doubled in the past year, consequently matching and surpassing Verizon’s own. After reading the card, Harvey comically announces that he ‘wasn’t wrong this time,’ and scrambles off the scene. Steve Harvey’s endorsement serves as an allusion to his infamous faux pas at the 2015 Miss Universe pageant, where he misread his index card and declared the incorrect winner. This device accomplishes two things: it attracts the audience’s attention through witty, alluded humor, and it appeals to Logos – which follows up on T-Mobile’s previous claim on Verizon’s inaccuracy with data, thus establishing credibility and unveiling T-Mobile’s LTE superiority to persuade the audience to switch. Finally, a narrator commands firmly for the audience to ‘join the millions that switched,’ while ‘#BALLOGIZE’ is depicted in the background.

Not only is the media coverage in conflict with O’Flaherty’s personal interests, it also shines an unnecessary spotlight on other members of the LGBT community that would prefer not to be defined by their sexuality.
