Sunday - Media Women

Television (Full Length Episode) – 1986

Lindsay Perigo and TV producer Allison Webber have a heated discussion about the portrayal of women in the media in this 1986 current affairs show. Webber says females are sick of being portrayed as sex symbols or tidiness-obsessed housewives. Webber was representing Media Women; the organisation was campaigning for better media coverage, and running its first NZ conference. Also interviewed are Dominion journalist Judy Pehrson, advertising guru Terry Christie, and Mr Wrong director Gaylene Preston (who talks about double standards in casting movie roles).

Most of the time they were portrayed as either the dolly bird glamour model — there primarily because they were attractive — or as the hausfrau, and often the hausfrau was portrayed as being rather stupid.
