We got our computers. Yay! We spent some time doing research on the internet to find out what kind of imagery was already out there pertaining to our topic. We also checked out websites that are dealing with similar issues. We looked at thatsnotcool.com, which is a public education campaign to raise awareness about how to deal with technological abuse and is funded by Futures Without Violence (formerly Family Violence Prevention Fund), the Department of Justice’s Office on Violence Against Women, and the Advertising Council. We also looked at loveisrespect.org, which offers information and resources on teen dating violence and is funded by the National Dating Abuse Helpline and Break the Cycle.
The video of “Run the World” by Beyonce response stood out to me because the woman in the video had a point that women don’t run the world. They don’t because everyday young girls and young women get raped or abused. So therefore women still aren’t respected by men. This video is making me think twice about how Beyonce views women. It seems that she’s not making women look more positive. Jonell Santiago, 17.
