Watch the film The Codes of Gender and hang out for a discussion after --we need a culture of revolt against this revolting culture!*.

Written and directed by Sut Jhally, The Codes of Gender shows how one of American popular culture's most influential forms communicates normative ideas about masculinity and femininity. The film presents an analysis of the role commercial advertising plays in influencing ideas and values about masculinity and femininity, including the incessant portrayals of women as powerless, submissive and dependent on men, while men are portrayed as active, strong and in control.
