Rape as been depicted as the norm and women were not allowed to object or cry over it.Romeo and Juliet from Sarajevo documentary in this line have changed romance to a greater extent, the attitude towards sex; intimacy and relationship have had a series of changes in the years past. It depicts how men and women have adopted negative attitude towards each other, men see a female body as a tool and not person they can live and share ideas with (Boyd, 1996-1997). Most men have opted to choose a woman based on the body not ability to love; they have gone for the most beautiful girls in the society leaving behind those the media and film show as less attractive. The creators of the documentary went along way into determining they meet UDHR stipulations.Romeo and Juliet from Sarajevo is devoid of pornographic content yet the primary tool of objectification in film industry of late, women in the films are displayed as tools for sex, and they are proved to be making love with animals like dogs and others. They show their nude bodies in order to arouse sex desires for their viewers which goes against regulations by UDHR. Moreover, some women appear to be having sex with their fellow women and others with men who seem too violent to them. They are done for fun but to a greater extent damage women reputation and their rights as stipulated by UDHR.Documentaries have depicted that the women in the music industry are dancing objects; they use their nude body to attract more attention and more fans to watch their music, their sexual parts are the most shown as they dance to the music. Men in the song are most of the time shown touching the women’s hips as they danced and shown kissing the ladies one man can be shown moving several women at a go without the girls being jealous (Boyd, 1996-1997). This demonstrates that the ladies are just objects to be used by the men to do as they please which is a violation of the regulations set forth by the human rights and the UDHR.Media industry has also been seen as objectifying women in one way, or another, the pictures of nude women they print in magazines, the picture running online and the ones they show on Television. The media have been a tool that rates women on their looks and not on their capabilities. On fashion watch, media tend to show only women with beautiful soft skin, trimmed waistlines and sexy looks as nice putting the life’s of the fat ladies at stake as they feel they are not yet beautiful.
