Male gaze

Laura Mulvey 

Mulvey claimed that women have turned in to sex objects, through how they are shot in the media today (cinematogrophy). They do this by showing only body parts and not the whole body (including face) they are turned on to objects for male pleasure. She called this fragmentation that lead to objectification.

Recent Representations of Feminity
Recent feminity has been associated with a stronger more independant women and confident women, while still bein stereotypically representated as 'sexy'.
This owes much to the spice girls with their 'Girl Power' and the emergence of succesfull women in buisness, the arts and the media.
