Hi, I am looking for someone to write an article on how a minority group of women are portrayed in the media Paper must be at least 1750 words. Please, no plagiarized work! The worst aspect of the world of media, however, is that women are first seen as a body, not as a person. At the Oscars 2013, Seth Macfarlane hosted the show and sang a song pointing out different actresses whose breasts had been exposed on TV, called, “I saw your boobs”.  .No song for the male actors and their anatomy was sung. Because still, all we see first in women is their body. If a man exposes his body on the screen. that is called art. If a woman does the same, it becomes a matter of crude statements. Take advertisements for instance. When promoting a bike, a woman is always shown to be splaying over the bike or something that is equally cheesy. Why? What does a woman’s body have to do with the motorbike? For this paper, I have decided to write on the role of Asian American women portrayed in media. The USA carries a large population of Asian American women. They are from all parts of Asia. China, Philippines, Pakistan, India, Bangladesh, Korea, Vietnam, etc. Many, especially in my generation, were born in the US and live as per her culture, and yet still they face bias, promoted mostly by the media. There are numerous stereotypes surrounding Asians. Indians are computer maestros, Pakistanis are terrorists, Koreans and Chinese are great with numbers and etc. East Asian women are seen as gold diggers, aggressive and opportunistic by the media. They are portrayed as cunning creatures, masters in sexual arts and ruthless/insensitive in all areas of life. But most importantly, Asian American women are shown as exotic, submissive, and sexually deviant creatures by the media, nothing more. They ergo, not only face gender bias but ethnic as well. Take the famous Bollywood actresses, Aishwariya Rai Bachan and Frieda Pinto. Both were able to break into Hollywood not because of their actions but because of the exotic element of their race and ethnicities. Movies like Mistress of Spices, Immortals, etc all stress the exotic nature of these women.
