"Face-ism" is a type of sexism originally documented in 1989 that focuses on media portrayal of men and women. Media depictions often focus attention on men's faces, while women's depictions include more complete bodies, so faces appear less prominent. Independent studies have shown facial prominence related to more positive and dominant evaluations, yet no published studies have studied the developmental course of face-ism. Join Class of 2016 McNair Scholar Gabriella Russo as she shares the research she has done with children and their artistic depictions of men and women.

For ages 55 and up.
