Privilege

Loading...
Middle-age documentary filmmaker Yvonne Washington is becoming a "woman of a certain age", so she invites long-time friend Jenny to assist in filming a candid and open dialogue on menopause. This becomes a commentary on the implicit interrelation between vanity and subjugation, as women already relegated to secondary status in society face further trivialization and exclusion, reduced to a caricatured, iconic pop culture image: the crone. The film is also a scathing exposition of ageism, sexism, economic elitism, and racism--the isms that artificially define and characterize empowerment in contemporary society--and the marginalization, disenfranchisement, and social segregation that pervade everyday existence, informing the myth of privilege.

An exploration of the way Hollywood dealt with or ignored issues of homosexuality during its so-called Golden Age, when the studio system reigned supreme. A funny and occasionally rude re-examination of the subterfuges by which Hollywood has alluded to and at the same time avoided an issue that it could not even name, much less identify, it is at the same time a serious survey of gender issues and how they were perceived and perpetuated by the Hollywood dream factory from the 1930s up to the 1960s.

Understanding Hookup Culture: What's Really Happening on College Campuses

When it comes to intimacy and sex, young people today are apparently doing away with the old rules of romance and cutting straight to the chase. If recent reports are to be believed, the rise of hookup culture on college campuses is in the process of killing off dating and courtship, radically altering some of our most basic assumptions about heterosexual sex and gender. But for all the speculation, there's been little beyond anecdotal evidence to back any of these claims up. This lecture by Stanford University's Paula England, a leading researcher in the sociology of gender, aims to clarify what's actually going on. England mobilizes a wealth of data to begin to chart whether the phenomenon of hooking up represents some kind of fundamental change, or whether we're simply seeing age- [...]

Wrestling With Manhood: Boys, Bullying and Battering

Wrestling with Manhood is the first educational program to pay attention to the enormous popularity of professional wrestling among male youth, addressing its relationship to real-life violence and probing the social values that sustain it as a powerful cultural force.

Drawing the connection between professional wrestling and the construction of contemporary masculinity, they show how so-called "entertainment" is related to homophobia, sexual assault and relationship violence. They further argue that [...]
