FA: Sexism In Music Videos

Rihanna - Where Have You Been

·  objectifying women
·  allows men to think that this belief is okay as she herself is female but is 'preaching' it
·  at the beginning when Rihanna is emerging from the water, the camera focuses on her body and her femininity as she leaves the water
·  some scenes where she is topless and covering herself with her arms
·  backing dancers barely clothed/wearing tight clothing
·  dance movements and gestures classed as sexual
·  lyrics makes women be seen as sex objects
·  shows that males will have the 'upper hand' in relationships
