Meredith is a musician and feminist that talks about how she noticed a dramatic change of the music industry in the late 1990s to being more sexual and concerned with the female body as opposed to music. Because she was in the music she has first hand experience on what it is like. This helps make what she say more credible. This is a scholarly source as it was located on proquest because it is peer reviewed. Like Hunter she feels that this new music industry is starting to turn into a pornographic scene. Women are wearing less, exposing more, and used as toys by men. I would say this article pertains to feminist and viewers of the music media. A bias that can be considered is that she is older and that times are changing. This may be acceptable to the new crowd as opposed to older viewers who want the music and not the sex. This article was written in 2008 and is still a big topic. Who is going to stop this image from carrying on? What should women do if they feel they are being used in the music industry? How can they make money if they feel the only thing that sells is there body? These are common questions that I think could apply to all aspect of the music industry. This issue is related to social justice because now the music industry is going in another direction. They are starting to be looked at as a form of pornography and that’s not good because young minds are being poisoned prematurely and this causes disrespect in the household. This also can relate to Peters in how women are sometimes just seen as objects instead of human being. Rowe, Ebonnie. "Exceptional Women." Esteem magazine 2008: 1-3. Print. This article talks about Ebonnie Rowe and how she has set up organizations for the betterment of women in the society against the inequalities faced by them in the entertainment business. She has won several awards for her efforts such as the YWCA’s woman of distinction award for her efforts. This makes her words more valuable and credible. She set up a program called Each one Teach one that sets up minority students with professional people. This shows them that the music industry isn’t the only way to riches and that you don’t have to sell your body to be successful. I feel this is a great role model for young women who can now see someone who is successful that is in the music business. This type of exposure for these kids can create a new life for them. This is a magazine source which you can derive from the citation above. This audience is for teenage girls who want to explore more options in life besides being a singer, dancer, or video honey. Written in 2008 I feel this is a great start to ending the sex-symbol image given to women in the music industry. This is important because the kids are our future and we must protect our assets so our country will grow. Why aren’t more women like Ebonnie coming out to help? Is it really that hard for people to speak out against something that is negative?

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
