Growing up in the Spotlight

Here’s an interesting view on what it’s like to be a Disney kid. Joe Jonas published his account of growing up in the spotlight. I think it’s pretty interesting seeing how the patriarchal views of sex and censoring sex acts also affect young men. Let me know what you all think!

Evan Rachel Wood on Women’s Sexuality in Film

I absolutely LOVE this article that features Evan Rachel Wood’s twitter rant on how women’s sexuality is portrayed in film and television shows. Personally I find it pretty problematic in our society where we prize men as being naturally sexual beings, so it’s ok if they participate in sexual acts in public (you can check out some of my views on this sort of thing here.) Evan talks about how women’s sexuality in film is overly-censored and it’s a bunch of bologna– and I completely agree. It’s about time that women stopped getting slut-shamed and censored and were allowed to be perceived as the sexual beings that they are.

You go Evan!

New York Film Academy put together a great visual on how women are unequally represented in film. If there’s any feminist movie junkies out there, this is the perfect article for you!
