09:35 "Enlightened Sexism" - why it's seen as OK to bring back sexist images of women.
Susan J Douglas, professor of Communications at the University of Michigan, columnist and author.
She argues that the media is increasingly resurrecting sexist stereotypes of girls and women because of an assumption that feminism's work has been done.
She calls this "enlightened sexism" - which she says is a new subtle form of bias, that brings back sexist and shallow images of women in the media, all with a wink and a laugh.
Susan J Douglas' latest book points out that women in general are still paid much less than men, and still battle that glass ceiling which still sees men in most of the top jobs.
