||What is the image of women in popular media? This question serves as a red thread on “Pop Models” and comes in seven clips, seven analyses… and seven questions.

How does Hollywood prioritize lead female characters? Does the use of male or female avatars modify the experience of online video gaming? How can sexist hip-hop clichés be reappropriated by female artists? Many questions have showed how masculine society imposes itself in diverse media and is fueled by many clichés and stereotypes about women. “Pop Models” has produced a reflection on the media’s stigmatization of women in order to try to contribute to the evolution of gender relations.
