NBC Video of Female Athletes shows Sexism

Unfortunately, a video NBC created and posted on the web during the Olympics suggests sexism again. Here is an excerpt of an article on it: “ The video, titled “Bodies In Motion,” depicts select female Olympic athletes in slow motion. The first two shots are of one woman taking off her shorts and another licking her lips. The women selected are overwhelmingly white, thin and wearing uniforms that are varying degrees of revealing, and the footage is set to what Jezebel’s Erin Gloria Ryan describesas “soft core porn music.” http://www.huffingtonpost.com/2012/08/10
