Yahoo Article



Incidents of violence against women on mainstream U.S. television has increased by 120 percent in the past five years, with the depiction of teen girls as victims rising by some 400 percent, the Parents Television Council said in a report on Wednesday.




The media watchdog said it was particularly disturbed by the use of violence against women in comedies and said it hoped TV networks and advertisers would stand up against the trend.



I just saw this on yahoo not too long ago. When I watch TV I guess I do see it but dont really notice it on the rise or anything. I mostly see it on shows like this.

(ignoring comedies for now)

i think the fact that its teenage girls as the victims of violence plays on the fears of adults quite a bit.

in comedies its probably just the fact that people love laughing at horrible and/or over-the-top things. in comedy nothing is sacred. etc

It's easy to say "oh just turn your T.V off", but the people who would be smart enough to do that would be people not effected by what TV dictates anyway.

The truth is that life follows art. What we show on TV, people subconsciously see as real (the scenarios, emotions, reactions), and people will subconsciously recall what they saw on TV in a relevant situation to determine what they will do next.

Hasn't all aspects of violence increased? Is there stats that compare this to violence against women?
