TIME to talk about gender

1 May

Better responses in Society and Culture assessments and exams are supported by real world examples.  Below are two commentaries on TIME Magazine articles which may be of use when seeking to discuss the complexities associated with gender in our society.

The first is an article by Candice Chung, which discusses responses to TIME Magazine’s decision to cover an issue with an image of Hillary Clinton’s pant suit-clad leg and a small man handing off the heel of her sensible shoes.  Particularly interesting in Chung’s article is discussion of the connotations of this image and how the cover has been interpreted.

The second article is by Effie Mann, and discusses TIME Magazine’s decision to cover a magazine about the 100 most influential people with a picture of Beyoncé in her underwear.  Here, discussion centres on the differences between how men and women are represented on the cover of TIME Magazine.
