What is Representation?
Representation in Media means, by definition, all media texts arere-presentations of reality. This means that they are intentionallycomposed, lit, written, framed, cropped, captioned, branded,targeted and censored by their producers, and that they areentirely artificial versions of the reality we perceive around us.Representation is a fluid, two-way process: producers position atext somewhere in relation to reality and audiences assess a text onits relationship to reality.Wikipedia
 
The action of speaking or acting on behalf of someone or the stateof being so represented. Also, the description or portrayal of someone or somethingin a particular way or as being of a certain
nature”
 
 
What Representation theorists
can you find?
Laura Mulvey 
is a British feminist film theorist. The concept of gaze is one that deals withhow an audience views the people presented, for feminists it can be thought of in three ways.1
How men look at women. 2- How women look at themselves. 3
How women look at 
other women. Laura Mulvey created the ‘Male Gaze’ theory in 1975. She believes that in film,
audiences have to view all characters from the perspective of a homosexual male. Argues that cinema positions the audience as male. The camera gazes at the female object on screen. It also frames the male character watching the female. (We watch the girl; we see the malewatching the girl; we position ourselves within the text as a male objectively gazing at thefemale. Can be applied to other media forms also).
