Killing us softly 4 advertising's image of women c2010

Sut Jhally, Jean Kilbourne, and Media Education Foundation

"In this new, highly anticipated update of her pioneering Killing us softly series, the first in more than a decade, Jean Kilbourne takes a fresh look at how advertising traffics in distorted and destructive ideals of femininity. The film marshals a range of new print and television advertisements to lay bare a stunning pattern of damaging gender stereotypes--images and messages that too often reinforce unrealistic, and unhealthy, perceptions of beauty, perfection, and sexuality. By bringing Kilbourne's groundbreaking analysis up to date, Killing us softly 4 stands to challenge a new generation of students to take advertising seriously, and to think critically about popular culture and its relationship to sexism, eating disorders, and gender violence"--Container. 1 videodisc (45 min.)

These people are called transexuals. Gary, 36 when we began filming, has always believed that he is a woman, 'trapped' in a man's body. Before he can be accepted for sex-change surgery, Gary must demonstrate that he can successfully live and work as a women, 24 hous a day, for at least one year. It is during this transition period that the real gender shift occurs, a time of unraveling layers of masculine behavior to uncover 'Gabi,' the woman he believes himself to be.

Sext up kids c2012

The powder keg that is porn culture has exploded in the lives of North American children. From thongs and padded bras for 9-year-old girls to "sexting, " 24-7 internet porn, and unfiltered social media, kids today are bombarded with commercial sexual appeals like never before. In this astonishing new documentary, award-winning documentary filmmaker Maureen Palmer explores what this radical transformation of the culture means for young people, parents, and our very notions of childhood. Palmer interviews researchers who have been tracking how the accelerating pressure to be sexy -- and sexual -- is changing kids' behavior and undermining their health. She sits down with parents and educators struggling to help kids navigate puberty in a hypermediated cultural environment that no longer seems to recognize or respect the developmental needs of children. And she talks to teens and pre-teens who share eerily casual insights into the routine role sex plays in their lives. The result is a stunning exploration of the sexualization of childhood and a startling wake-up call for parents who still think their own children are immune to the excesses and influences of today's sexed-up youth culture. 1 videodisc (42 min.)

Understanding hookup culture what's really happening on college campuses 2011

Sut Jhally, Jason T Young, Paula Young, and Media Education Foundation

When it comes to intimacy and sex, young people today are apparently doing away with the old rules of romance and cutting straight to the chase.  If recent reports are to believed, the rise of hookup culture on college campuses is in the process of killing off dating and courtship, radically altering some of our most basic assumptions about heterosexual sex and gender. But for all the speculation, there's been little beyond anecdotal evidence to back any of these claims up.  This lecture by Stanford University's Paula England, a leading researcher in the sociology of gender, aims to clarify what's actually going on. England mobilizes a wealth of data--illustrated with highly accessible motion graphics--to begin to chart whether hooking up represents some kind of fundamental change, or whether we're simply seeing age-old gender patterns dressed up in new social forms. 1 videodisc (29 min.) :

The education of Shelby Knox a documentary 2005

Marion Lipschutz, Rose Rosenblatt, Shelby Knox, P.O.V. (Firm), Independent Television Service, Cine Qua Non (Firm), and InCite Pictures (Firm)

Documentary which presents the political activism of high school student Shelby Knox. The film begins in 2001 when Shelby Knox, a 15-year-old high school sophomore, joins the Lubbock Youth Commission, a group of high school students empowered by the mayor to give Lubbock's youth a voice in city government. Knowing that Lubbock, Tex. had one of the highest rates of teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted disease in the nation, the Youth Commission questioned Lubbock's abstinence-only sex education policy. Shelby, a politically conservative Southern Baptist who had pledged abstinence until marriage, became the group's most vocal proponent of comprehensive sex education. The documentary explores other issues beyond the debate over abstinence-only versus comprehensive sex education. It portrays Shelby's family's struggle with teen independence; Shelby's struggle with her Christian faith; Shelby's widening activism into other issues, such as the creation of a Gay/Straight Alliance at her high school; issues of tolerance; and the power of political activism. 1 videocassette (76 min.)
