Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Gender and the Media Introduction Gender is what separates people into groups. Its definition is the sex of a person or animal. In this case it will be just for people. There are only two genders, male and female and everyone is in one of these groups. For years males were thought to be superior to females and were thought to be better and to have more and do more than the females could ever have or do. But recently in the past years women have been climbing up and are recognised today as equals but not everyone still thinks that. Media is an important part of life, it is everywhere. The media surrounds us everyday and we rely on it for many things. Such as news, information, offers, etc. Examples of media are newspapers, magazines, radio, television, advertisements, etc. this list goes on and on. The media is key part in life but the people that control it don't always seem to be fair and don't always seem to be a reliable source of information but most of the time they are fair and helpful. ...read more.

Using these sources as well information given to me in class, I hope to achieve my annul-hypothesis. One of the magazines that I will be using for my research is car magazine called CAR. It is mainly targeted for men I believe or anyone who is interested in cars and wants to know about the latest models, best cars to buy, prices, detailed description about a specific car, etc. I will be looking at a range of articles to see if it shows any signs of women who have written any of these articles and also looking at the pictures and advertisements. The main articles that I will be looking at will be as follows: 1. Enzo Ferrari 2.

It is thought to be the greatest Ferrari ever built and some say it is the greatest car ever built. This article which is quite long and goes on for 10 pages. ...read more.

Conclusion

Surely they should allow a man and a women to both drive it. Also another point is the fact they only allowed Michael Schumacher to contribute to the development and production of the Enzo, I know he is a key part in Ferrari's driving section and is one of the best driver in the world but if women are going to drive it they should have a female opinion. Shown below is a picture of the man driving the Enzo: In this entire article they only mention men who work in the Ferrari Company and there is no mention of any women. Like Enzo Ferrari, Michael Schumacher, Amedeo Felisa and Luci di Montezemolo. These people are all-important parts of Ferrari Company as they all have key important roles but there isn't any mention of women who participated in this project, the little people count as well. Mark Walton wrote this article and Barry Hayden took the pictures. This article did not include any pictures of any females, didn't not mention any female's names, didn't have anything to do with females, females took no pictures nor did a female write the article. ...read more.
