Feminist Wednesday Intern Amy took to the streets of new york to ask folks about feminism! Lets check in and see what she found out!

Question of the week: How do you think women are represented in the media, and do you think it's fair?

Screen Shot 2014-07-23 at 9.40.58 AM Peter: I don't know if there's a monological of women in the media but in general it's not fair. There's still lot of objectification and women as characters are male dominated and that's bad. Yeah, I'm a feminist.

Translation: Sometimes in the music videos, women are used only to bring attention and aren't really there to bring a good message. I am not a feminist.
