Description

I'm cited for saying in my Conversation 2016 article 'How the Bachelor Turns Women into Misogynists' that the show's producer's ‘turned women into misogynists’ by encouraging them to fight for the audiences’ entertainment and leaking information about the women in order to drum up publicity'. I'm further cited: “Narratives like The Bachelor give prominence to women, but push them to devalue one another on the basis of their looks, or lack of acceptably “feminine” behaviour."
