Caleb: No, women are usually beautiful and helpless. They are often used in situations that make them look weak and defeseless. Men are often portrayed as powerful and hereos, such as Superman or a male who is a cop.
Chuck: Yes they are equally portrayed in the media today. There is no difference in how women are depicted and how men are. Feminism isn't allowed in the media and if it was ever detected, the papers would be quickly taken up, then re-printed.
