Portrayal of Women on Social Media - Reception

Date and Time:

Tuesday, February 18, 2014
6:00 PM - 8:00 PM

Location:

  • Mary Idema Pew Library » Exhibition Space

Description:

This project was initiated out of a desire to further shed light on how social media has reinforced the messages that media has been giving out for decades to women. The display is meant to capture the pressures that social media places on women to portray themselves in media settings, such as Facebook profile pictures and Instagram photos.

It hoped that this visual representation of the vast dichotomy between reality and media's portrayal of women will move viewers to think more critically about the images they consume.
