Public Meeting: You're Not Crazy, It's Sexism7:00pm, Thursday, May 19 Haymarket People’s Fund 42 Seaverns Avenue, Jamaica Plain T to Green Street

 capitalist consumer culture treats women’s bodies as objects to be 
matched up against an exacting (and racist) standard of physical beauty 
and thrown away. This ad manages to do both. And it’s not the only one. 
Outside of advertising, women don’t do much better. Female characters in
 film are often one-dimensional, existing only as a love/sex interest 
for the main (male) character. These cultural depictions come from a 
real world in which women continue to make 78¢ for every dollar men 
make. Come discuss all this and how to fight back against it.
