In mass media and art, women and girls are usually represented by adult men. The culture industries are all dominated by male producers, artists, and authors, and often the representations they create routinely and mundanely objectify women. Female characters often are spoken about rather than doing the speaking, they are often positioned on camera to be looked at rather than looking or doing something.

I am re-reading Girls Make Media, and I keep thinking, but wait! girls who sext are authors of their own images and representations too! So this is my latest book title:

Sexting panic: The reaction to girls seizing the means of representation
