PDCP Media Images Project

Using the videos we watched in class as a model and inspiration, please work alone, with a partner or in a group of 3 and complete one of the following (or create your own variation):


Toxic Media Takedown GRRRLZ!

You can do this in two ways:

Advertisement Analysis Poster:

Choose an advertisement from a magazine that depicts a woman posed in a vulnerable, sexualized or ridiculous way. Photocopy or photograph the image and overlay text that calls the image into question, drawing attention to the way that women are represented and how it impacts girls and women.


Photoshoot Poster:

Using an advertisement that uses an image of a woman depicted as weak, hyper-sexualized, or unrealistic, recreate the pose in a real-life environment and photograph it. Develop a caption that offers a critique of the way women are represented in the mainstream media.


Mighty Warrior Version:

Create a poster that represents womankind as healthy, capable and strong. Create an image and overlay a slogan for the image so that the message is clear.


Compassionate and Caring Dudes:

Choose any of the above ideas and create a poster that calls into question how men are represented in media. Or make an image that suggests a healthy, balanced alternative. It’s cool for guys to be caring!


Gender Bender Revolution:

Perhaps you want to look at the duality of gender as our society has traditionally defined it and call it into question. Create an image and slogan that do just that. Who wants to be put in a box anyways? Not me!
