Description
Summary:<p><span style="vertical-align: inherit;"><span style="vertical-align: inherit;">This analysis discusses the sexual objectification of the Tunisian woman in the drama Of Skin and Men by director Mehdi Ben Attia. The film deals with the position of women in Tunisian society and offers an insight into the everyday life of the protagonist. In recent years, there have already been some academic discussions on feminist theories and publications on gender-based violence in the MENA <br>region. For this reason, the portrayal of women as the weaker sex should be considered from a media studies perspective. In this work it is argued that the protagonist is exposed to the sexual objectification, power and violence of the Tunisian man.<br></span></span></p>
