Examining and explaining the 3 statements.

In many rap videos women have no identity except as sexual playthings and "eye candy"

These images do provide pleasures to some viewers. But the concern is that men may internalise the notion that women are nothing more than sexual objects waiting to be used.

These sorts of images are not unique to hip hop. Objectified female bodies are everywhere. They appear throughout our culture in films, advertisements, television programmes etc. However, within music videos, this is virtually the ONLY vision of women available.

The first statement is fairly true. it suggests that when the video girls are in music videos the are no one apart from the artists toys, they are purely to make the artist look good and they are not important for anything else. it gives off the impression that these video girls are being used and do not get respected. like they have been given a label and nobody looks beyond that.

The second statement says how the video girls provide pleasure for some viewers, it suggests that they are a liability and that the men are just watching the videos to get pleasure out of the girls, not that they like the song or the artist just simply for the girls in bikinis. Although some video girls may like getting well known, you cant exactly say that its for the right reasons! 

With the third statement it is quite hard to get out of it what it means, from what i can gather i think it is saying that music videos reveal more about girls then you see on T.V. Where it says "these sorts of images are not unique to hip hop" i think that is trying to get across that the naked girls in music videos is gradually finding its way into more and more genres.\




You have a number points here but none of them have examples. If you don't really have any specific examples to back up your points made, you can't get higher than a low D.

T: Find specific, detailed examples from Music Videos to back up your points.
