Forever 39 is New Jersey 101.5's new podcast about living life as Gen Xers in New Jersey, hosted by Annette Petriccione, Megan Barsel and lots of our friends from the NJ 101.5 universe.

Female sexual objectification — Are women taught this?

It's 2017, but are women still viewed as sexual objects? Are females here to fulfill others desires rather than their own? published an article in 2016 that lists nine ways women are taught to view themselves as sexual objects. And it's not something that just women learn. Men are also taught to objectify women thanks to a number of factors like media influence and gender roles, according to an article published by Everyday Feminism.

We're joined by special guest New Jersey 101.5 News Anchor Daniela Berson to discuss how women continue to be objectified.
