Representation of Women in Music Videos


In this essay I will be speaking about how girls are presented and viewed in music videos.

Through out music videos men view and look at girls as if they were toys, or objects that only served their purpose. They can use them when they want and leave them where they want. They are always seen as sexy, slim, basically the definition of an ideal perfect girl.

They are always seen in hardly any cloths. As time goes on the girls on the music videos get worse and worse. There is a recent video by Rhianna called ‘pour it up.’ It was banned after 10 minutes and the papers described it as a ‘massive twerk fest.’  There was also a video recently banned called ‘blurred lines’ by Robin Thicke.’

Is it right for children under the age of 16 to be watching these videos? These videos could be classed as pornographic videos.  People argue that parents shouldn’t be allowing their children to watch these music videos.

You could also argue that for girls to be doing those videos it shows that they have freedom, spirit to be free to do what they want in their life. 




What you have here is very good and you have responded well to the question. You have used some examples and some terminology. 

T: What you must do now is develop your points and fully explain them using multiple specific examples. Pick out all of the technical aspects (Mise-en-scene, editing, lyrics etc)
