Here is the Front Page of a French Magazine, March 2010.
I found it last Thursday, as I was waiting for a business meeting, at the hotel lounge.
What attracted me was the title
"Femmes lyonnaises : celles qui prennent le pouvoir!"
Women in Lyon : women in charge ( literally women who take the Power!)
Also the Top 50 most influential women…
Ok, why not, I was curious and took the magazine while waiting for my appointment.
The picture is a very sexy woman's naked back, with a dress you would only wear on
Oscar ceremony or festival de Cannes.
What does it have to do with women leaders and women 's influence?
I guess a man must have designed this front page, for other men…
- Second remark: the little header before the big headline
Les Hommes vont en baver!
Now, that's really shocking.
It means " men are going to suffer"
(literally :men are going to drool)
The content of the magazine reflected the cover, not worth mentioning here.
On this women's month, I wanted to blog about the distorted representation of women and power in the media.
Waiting for your comments!
