Abstract [en]

The first main purpose of this essay is to describe the situation of young women today here in this part of the world concerning influences from commercial media.

The second purpose with this essay is to investigate if dance could be used as a tool against all these sterotyped and superficial pictures and ideals in the industy of commersial media.

With some questions I also want to get closer to the answer if dancing is a way for young women to get insight knowledge. I also describe women from dance history who experienced that dance filled them up with energy but also environment where there was oppression.

This essay has a gender perspective.

The methods are manly based on literature studies but information is also gathered from the Internet and from one film.

My results are that dance is a very constructive way to give the young woman that force which is needed when meeting media pictures everywhere. It gives her self-confidence, body awareness, joy and strength in life.
