In many rap videos women have no identity except as sexual playthings and "eye candy"

They have woman in videos to get more views an example of this is candy shop where there is loads of woman in short clothes around the house.

These images do provide pleasures to some viewers. But the concern is that men may internalise the notion that women are nothing more than sexual objects waiting to be used.

The videos provide pleasure because all the woman are in bikinis/short clothes an example of this is the thing song where woman are dancing in thongs on the beac

These sorts of images are not unique to hip hop. Objectified female bodies are everywhere. They appear throughout our culture in films, advertisements, television programmes etc. However, within music videos, this is virtually the ONLY vision of women available.

These images are shown in other types of media like magazines, films, advertisements, programmes and television. However music videos are the only type were women are presented in a way were they are used as a sexual object and not as a normal person




You have a number of points here and have chosen a sound example, but you don't really have any specific examples to back up your points made.

T: Find multiple specific examples and apply them to your chosen videos to help you fully explain and back up your points.
