Media Musings Blog Archive Military Women
Nike tiempo 2017 i wonder about the chicken and egg scenario. Is this a case of commentators reflecting societal values, or has the media just jumped on a issue where they can stir controversy?
« Essentially, we’ve managed to make amendments to military protocol to state that if someone is good enough to do something, then they should be able to do it. Fireworks will ensue at 12, Geoff Lemon quipped on Crikey.
Lemon is right. The government is in favour, the opposition agree, and the military are very much along for the ride. Yet I was far from surprised by the anguish the government’s fairly reasonable decision provoked.
Greg Sheridan wrote in The Australian yesterday that allowing women to serve in front line roles signaled a government that no longer took it’s military seriously, and rather disingenuously, that it showed a lack of respect for women.
I’ve no desire to join the military. But Sheridan’s idea that allowing women to even try out for combat units is disrespectful to women well, I find that disrespectful. And I am a woman.
Likewise Clive Hamilton in the Sydney Morning Herald today, announced that « With women to take on military combat roles, it is time to sound the Last Post over the rotting corpse of feminism, Hamilton argues women are intrinsically better, gentler and should civilising force for good.
It’s flattering, in a way, and it’s true that historically feminism has often been linked with the peace movement. They are both visions for a better society, admirable ones.
Hamilton recalled Germaine Greer, who said that women sought freedom, but settled for equality. The problem for me, is that a law barring a suitably qualified woman from a job is not a reflection of freedom or equality, it’s discrimination, plain and simple.
Yesterday I spoke with US media activist Melinda Warner for Triple R radio. She warns of a slide to right wing opinion infecting the Australian press, as she says it has done in the US.
Warner says outlets are increasingly employing the most outrageous conservatives they can find, as shock value boosts ratings. The problem she sees is that eventually their views start swaying public opinion.
You done a great job as an opinion piece here Larissa and used commentators to back up your argument. As a reflection of media analysis I think nike tiempo 2017 you get around to in in your final couple of pars when you quote Melinda Warner and talk about a right wing media influence. I would love to see some evidence, or even your opinion on this, as it leads us more towards the actual analysis of this issue in the media.
Perhaps next time you might like to think about moving such a critical observation a little higher up the blog post. Otherwise well done!
