The Message in the Medium

This time on The FREQ Show, we’re talking about something that’s at the very core of our mission here at Feminist Frequency, something we believe is truly important: media literacy. Unfortunately, while it’s an essential skill, media literacy often gets short shrift in our schools, and we figured we could all use a quick crash/refresher course on what media literacy is and why it matters. How do you engage in media literacy? What kinds of questions do you ask? Why is it vital to bring a critical eye to our experiences with media? What’s up with Ebony’s hatred of mayonnaise? Yes, with the help of some truly horrifying ads, we cover all the big questions here.
