In episode #2 of “Ways of Seeing”, John Berger explains that the nude women in Renaissance painting weren’t recognized for themselves but instead for men’s pleasures. I believe in today’s society the role of women has changed dramatically but still remnants of those times remain. Women have definitely gained some control over their images in the media but unfortunately the reality of it is that some people still see women the same way. In the episode Berger states “A nude has to be seen as an object in order to be nude.”, in todays society I believe sexuality is starting to play less and less or a role in that statement. Male and female alike both objectify nudes regardless.
