What Does Woman Achieve from Her Body?

Nowadays, advertisement is something important to the mostly of mass media. It supports the mass media by sponsoring them to keep in circulation. As the compensation, the company or institution that pays certain mass media to put their ads on it will get more customers who see the ads. Moreover, the advertiser also makes the ads as attractive as possible, and one of the tricks is by using woman as the model. This is a common phenomenon in our advertising world. The advertiser often uses Woman as the model even though the product is not aimed to woman kind. Some feminist consider this as the form of woman exploitation, because the company “sell” the woman’s body to market the product.

Pengkerdilan Peran Perempuan Dalam Pemikiran Yunani

di sudut-sudut keluhuran filsafat Yunani kuno, ada celah yang menjadi anomali dari pengkultusannya terhadap derajat manusia. Para pemikir yang menggagungkan logika dan rasionalitas itu, seakan melupakan bahwa ada makhluk yang bernama perempuan. Perempuan ditempatkan oleh mereka pada derajat yang tidak setingkat dengan kaum laki-laki. Ada diskriminasi dalam pemikiran para filsuf ini terhadap perempuan baik yang jelas terliat atau tersembunyi. Dari perlakuan diskriminatif yang tersembunyi itu, hanya akan dapat diungkap melalui cara pandang fenimisme, bukan falogocentris yang hanya melihat sesuatu dari sudut pandang laki-laki. Lebih jauh lagi, pemikiran para filsuf masa Yunani kuno ini, diakui masih memiliki pengaruh pada masa kini. Bukan hanya rasionalitas dan logika yang digunakan, tapi paham patrialkal yang tetap terjaga dalam konstruksi sosial masyarakat. Dalam tulisan ini, akan diungkap bagaimana tendensitas perlakuan diskriminatif terhadap kedudukan perempuan yang terkandung dalam pemikiran para filsuf Yunani Kuno dan pengaruhnya yang masih dirasakan hingga masa modern ini.
