The Florida State women’s basketball team has taken a new approach
promoting its team.
Their new website, http://www.seminolehoops.com/team1.shtml, highlights a picture of the team in formal attire showing a more feminine snapshot. Then by clicking on each
team member you are brought to an individual glamor picture either stepping out of a limo or leaning up against one.
The controversy about whether or not this is empowering or degrading remains unsolved. Does the femininity emphasize a pride and liberation to women or does it reinforce the idea that women must always fit into the beauty box?
