I used to have a recurring nightmare. In the nightmare, I was trapped in a concrete maze on top of a building. I ran frantically through the maze, gasping for breath, looking for a way out.

Does society encourage women to be oversexualized? By ‘sexualization,’ we are referring to the perception of a person in regards to their sexuality.  So, by ‘oversexualized,’ in particular women, we want to discuss how girls and women are being bombarded with the pressure to be sexy.   Let’s start by addressing the sexualization of girlhood.  I’m talking about sexy media, dolls, video games, clothing, teenage magazines, just to name a few.    ‘Ample evidence testing these theories indicates that sexualization has negative effects in a variety of domains, including cognitive […]
