Miss Representation, a whole World of it!

As media people, designers, advertisers, communication artists, etc, we need to be more aware about being the right type of "producers" in the way we are, we think, we design, and the way we just are, a reflection of thoughts and beliefs.

It's very tricky when you are also a "consumer" and in constant exposure of this same media, that you are aware of how it's affecting you, directly or indirectly, consciously or unconsciously. It's not limited to women, objectifying women or misrepresenting women, rather a whole set of concepts, values, human factors, cognitive paradigms and a shift in mentality.

"The most common way people give up their power is by thinking they don't have any." Alice Walker

Pause...for a few moments and reflect!

Are you a victim of consumerism?! How far did you go?! Or are you so deep that it blinded you from other sightings, reflections, owning your own thoughts?! Or are you a mere mirror of that big worldly bubble of "Eat Sleep Work Die" or "Work Consume Sleep Repeat"?! And your life, thoughts, actions and even words are media-zed consumerism verbatim?!

Pause...and reflect over and over again... everyday!
