How are modern music videos affecting social freedom for women?

When looking into history, around the 1920s, flappers where women that dressed in an unorthodox manner. When looking into our modern society, women are doing the same now and the name for them has also changed. Do you feel that the media (ex : Rihanna, Rude Boy, Lady Gaga, Telephone) is affecting females social freedom and if so, is the change A) beneficial and B) necessary for females as a general populace. I would also like to ask if what the media is doing can expand on the freedom of women?

Answer #5

Answer #6

Not every artist discriminates women and it’s not always RAP fyi Second the women artists out there today arent all slu**y Lady Gaga {is my idol} she is an amazing creative woman who gets all this hate. I like to see you go up there and perform and work as hard as she does on stage. anyway sometimes the women who arent even famous are the whole reason we are talked about {for the most part} as skanks and stuff. If you know taht you are not any of those awful things don’t take it to heart because their not talking about you or towards you. sometimes you just need to think jeez

Answer #7

Gosh people, I was hoping for an answer to my question… What I’m asking is, do you think that the media is assisting women to “escape” the conservative side of their lives? As most of you may know and can date back to, women used to wear long dresses that took a tedious amount of time. They also had to act like a “lady” at all times. Now with the media endorsing these kinds of videos and in the time of age we live in, do you feel that this change is good or bad and do you feel that it’s expanding the rights of women and their social freedom? Tell me if this isn’t clear enough :)

Answer #8

Good because now for the women who aren’t always in the mood to be lady-like can act how they want to and not like a doll sitting on a shelf and when she gets off the she only does one thing for the rest of her doll life. She gets make decisions dress hows she wants and escape for awhile basically she doesnt have to be tied down anymore hehe i hope that answered your question sorry about the answer before

Answer #9

Thank you for the input, I was wondering about this outside of a Chinese restaurant. it seems to me that this might be one of the few good things the media is doing for us. Expanding on the social rights of women, even if it might be in a wrong way at first glance, the actions are always voluntary :)

Answer #10

Well i think the media nowadays is giving women the right to dress and think the way they want

Answer #11

In a way I do agree with you when you say ‘Do you think that the media is assisting women to “escape” the conservative side of their lives?’, yes it is. But it’s only the extroverts that take advantage of that fact. If you look around, artistic people are taking advantage of high fashion etc, dressing up enthusiastically, and expressing individuality, and that’s great. But the same old life goes on for introverts who just can’t dress up like that and create a scene. They will never be able to act like that as they are too self conscious and are not thrill-seekers like extroverts. I think that celebrities like Lady Gaga are splitting the world in two, with extroverts and introverts on either side. People who dress up don’t talk to people who are more conservative and vice versa. I think if the media continues with this, we will have big fashion debates that will rock the future.

Answer #12

Okay, quick question for you, who are the people that prohibited females to dress how they want and why is the media in your view, the one that is “giving” women the queue to dress as they please?

Answer #13

Yeah i agree not even the videos but the lyrics in the songs..we arnt all prostitutes Lol

Answer #14

i think the change is good… not alll videos talk about or show slu**y girls…. and i think it is ok for girl to dress however they please but if it meeans wearing daisy dukes and basicly bras in public then they should think twice about what they want people to think of them….
