EVALUATION - (In what ways does your media product use, develop and challenge forms and conventions of real media products?)

My magazine challenges forms which date back to the 1960s where feminism was widely acclaimed. I have made sure that my magazine does not conform to the stereotypical views the feminists had in the 60’s. Famous feminist Naomi Wolf had strong view like women were looked down on and seen as sex objects. In the 21st century our society is mostly post feminist which then gave the media a chance to then bow to its full potential. For example a typical r’n’b artist who is featured on the front of a magazine the images stereotypically show the men as the alpha male and the women as more inferior. Whereas with an indie/rock based the men tend to be more dominant but its subtle giving the males and females similar and equal. More so the post feminist society nowadays suggests that more women and men use what they have to gain more advertisement and fame. The front cover of my magazine shows a large image of a female showing that I have stuck to the image where females and males are equally dominant characters. There fore my magazine is aimed at both males and females due to the contents featured within it.
