Sexual Consent and Seduction in Movies and Television with Michele Meek

Sexual Consent and Seduction in Movies and Television as KOP welcomes filmmaker/writer/professor Michele Meek, author of Independent Female Filmmakers—A Chronicle Through Interviews, Profiles and Manifestos.

Michele Meek
TEDx Providence, 10/13/2018 at the Vets Memorial Auditorium in Providence, Rhode Island.

We talked about how the content that we’re being subjected to in our TV and movies, and the negative connotations they raise are a big problem based on a number of variables:

  • How this content gets exposed to children and how it’s indicative of a need for sex education at an early age?
  • How victims of sexual assault and harassment (which facts show the supermajority of victims are women over men), and how they respond after the fact, are affected due to an evolving social and cultural change that is creating negative reactions?
  • How men are becoming more conformed to react and respond differently to women then they might have in past generations?

Michele Meek is a filmmaker/writer/professor, and she recently published the book Independent Female Filmmakers—A Chronicle Through Interviews, Profiles and Manifestos.

She is an Assistant Professor of Communication Studies at Bridgewater State University where she teaches courses in digital media production, film studies, screenwriting, and gender studies. She has written and directed several award-winning short films, and she is the founder of NewEnglandFilm.com. Her website is http://www.michelemeek.com.
