For the last couple of days, continuing my research into various relevant theories,  I have been looking at Laura Mulvey's Male Gaze, and the objectification of women, particularly in terms of music videos. 

I began to understand the concept of how Mulvey suggests everyone views on-screen action from the view of a heterosexual male. I also had a look at the idea of features, in terms of use of the camera via voyeuristic shots, and how a women's identity can be taken off them by the camera, turning them into sexual objects. 

I researched what the whole idea was based on, and how power played a major role, in terms of Mulvey's interpretation of how women are portrayed in the media.
