What’s wrong with being sexy?

Women’s Group Blasts TV, Calls it Sexist
In its third annual report on how women are portrayed in prime time TV, the National Organization for Women (NOW) is vilifying the six top networks, accusing them of pandering to an “adolescent boy’s fantasy world.” According to the study, the networks employ 134 more men than women. They also criticized the nets for those women being in the beauty standard of Jennifer Aniston (FRIENDS), i.e. “young, thin and white.” “Network programming sends a distorted, often offensive image of women, girls and people of color brought to you through the point of view of white men and boys,” said NOW Foundation president Kim Gandy. “Television remains very much a man’s world, with women serving primarily as eye candy.” Most of the networks say they have not seen the report yet and therefore do not have a comment.
