The exploitation of women in mass media refers to the criticisms often levied by feminists and other advocates of women's rights against the use or portrayal of women in the mass media (such as television, film and advertising) to increase the appeal of media or a product to the detriment of, or without regard to, the interests of the women portrayed, or women in general. The most often criticized aspect of the use of women in mass media is objectification.
