Mis Representation (part II)

Here are a few more tidbits to pique your interest in the "Mis Representation" post below:
(all from the interview)

-Teenagers spend 10 hours a day using/interacting with some form of media!
-The US population is 51% female, but women in media are found at a MUCH lower percentage, and are usually given minor roles - as props.
-Even in cartoons, females (whether in human or animal form) are often given the "Barbie" proportions.
-Women who are self-objectifiers have lower cognitive functioning and lower ambitions! and are even less likely to vote because they don't believe that their voice matters!
