As a female Television, Radio & Film student in the S. I. Newhouse School of Public Communications at Syracuse University, I encounter gender as it pertains to the communications and media industries every day.

Through the following photos, I am going to examine how gender affects Newhouse students and faculty in Television, Radio & Film department by exploring the past, present, and future of the school.
The way in which a person perceives the world and society surrounding them has a large impact on how they think, and act accordingly. One of the most distinct ways that determines how a person will interpret what is constantly happening around them is age. Age determines the level of understanding a person has of both simple and complex concepts, thus altering how they will react to different aspects of society. One of the most prevalent and commonly debated topics embedded in society is gender. For generations, society has had strict views on what should be considered acceptable for either gender, and age plays a large role in determining how a person understands gender roles, or how they identify with their gender. How people understand gender, and thus the society they interact with daily is largely determined by age.

Media is not a new concept and has been in existence since spoken word. The evolution of media has changed greatly and is currently in the golden age of televised, printed, and internet based consumer interaction. These new forms of media allow near instant interaction with a channel’s staff of actors, anchors, journalists, meteorologists, news experts, and models. Recently, news stations have been under intense scrutiny for their continued inadequate role in the advancement of women in the workforce and their disregard for how women are over-sexualized. Televised news has been traditionally a male dominated career in the United States since the introduction of radio news casts in August of 1920. While women worked as small stories journalists, editors, receptionists, and clerks for these media companies women had very limited opportunities for advancement in their careers while working for a fraction of the salary and hourly pay as their male counterparts.

This thought process is now referred to as the glass ceiling, which still remains an issue for the progressive movements of women advancement today in 2015.
