What women do you see
- Uncomfortable portrayal of women in the media
How does the media represent women and violence against women?
Sometimes they just consume sensationalism in the stories of violence or rape and sometimes distort the individuals in the stories giving the wrong message that violence against women is not something common and real but delusional. At the same time women’s life and struggle in the stories easily happen to be deleted.
How can women be portrayed without stereotype and prejudice. And is it impossible or unwilling to suggest new alternative beyond stereotype?
For the last 10 years WWF has noticed films exploring the gap between the perception and reality of violence against women and the socio-cultural structure which has widen the gap.
the 10th Annivesary Forum will discuss the way Korean media deal with violence against women and the meaning of film festival for women’s right as an alternative, and will explore new possibility.
