Misogyny in the Entertainment Industry

What is misogyny in the entertainment industry? Misogyny is defined as a fixed prejudice toward women, and there are plenty of examples of misogyny in the entertainment industry. From women’s song lyrics to award show attire, there is always something the media can critique.

Taylor Swift is shamed for “dating too much,” while Leo DiCaprio is praised for it. Olivia Rodrigo “only writes songs about her exes,” but most male artists do the same. Scarlett Johanson (“Black Widow”) is questioned on her “form-fitting” costume, yet Jeremy Renner (“Hawkeye”) is questioned on his training and stunts.
