Okay, we can all look at this picture and define sexism.  But, what about the pictures that are harder to place, like those found over and over again in contemporary society?  Images of gender stereotypes still permeate our lives -- but do they matter?  Aren't we so over advertising brainwashing by now?  Aren't we sophisticated enough to withstand social messages about gender, to take the little jokes and punches of media imagery with a grain of salt? 
Watch this little video.  Some of my favorite people, like Jackson Katz and Jean Kilbourne, make appearances in it.  Then decide if media images are harmless little nothings . . . or not. 

Oh, and please copy and paste.  Spread the word about this film, and this topic!
