This panel seeks to promote discussion of a prevalent and controversial issue in modern media; does film, television, or other forms of media feature healthy images of female or male body types? Do producers of visual media perpetuate physically unattainable images of beauty, and if so, why do they continue to produce such fare, and what are the effects upon their intended (or unintended) audiences? How does gender fit into this? This panel will delve into such issues and more.
