Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

This panel seeks to promote discussion of prevalent and controversial issues related to the way gender is depicted in films, television, advertising, and other forms of visual media. Do content producers feature constructive depictions of female or male gender roles? Are physically unattainable images of beauty perpetuated? Why do producers continue to create such fare? What are the effects, intended or unintended, upon their audiences? This panel will delve into such issues and more.
