A look at Media, Misogyny, and the "Consumption" of Women

ID: 4201

This workshop invites participants to take an in-depth look at how we as a culture have become comfortable with the institutional consumption of women. The purpose of the workshop is to help prepare workers in the field to understand the insidious and often unconscious reality of the consumption of women from a biopsychosocial perspective. We will begin by exploring the deeply rooted patriarchy that ceaselessly promotes and is comfortable with the objectification and resultant consumption of women. We will examine this phenomena with a spotlight on mass media including print, entertainment, technology and social media. Next we will discuss the consequences of this patriarchal paradigm including gender-based economic injustice, the over-sexualization and objectification of women and children; labor and sex trafficking and the parallel issue of sex-worker's rights. Participants will have the opportunity to explore how they can inform positive change within their communities as individual clinicians and advocates, as well as through the tools of leadership and organization-building within the movement of violence against women and children.
