Gender representation in television commercials updating an update
Satellites are a form of counter-public sphere where marginalized groups want to create the space to freely discuss societal issues without the dominant group.
We often see satellites emerge in social media in the form of multiscreening.
According to “Digital Diversity” by IPSOS Media, 49% of African Americans use social media while watching TV, which is much higher than the percentage of White viewers.
These organizations promote the voices and ideas of those who advocate for a more just social policy.
This in turn advances positive social changes and supports marginalized groups.
Twitter users announced their decision to Boycott and called for African American actors/celebrities to do the same.
People tweeted facts about how seldom black and nonwhite actors are recognized in award shows like The Oscars.
