The objectification of women has been an ongoing process for many years, but why is only now that people are stepping to raise awareness. I know there are many active feminists, but how come our society is only starting to accept this.

Because Men get objectified just as much as women do. Educate yourself with an Old Spice commercial. Also, in commercials, there are many studies that prove that showing women sexually, increases how many people want to buy the good or service. The media wouldn't objectify women if there was no economic value in it.

In the interrogation rooms of the Arab world men are subjected to sexual abuse, humiliation and torture, to an even higher degree, than female victims.
Why? Because the male sexuality is strong and therefore needs to be destroyed in order to destroy the person being tortured. Also the male body is the poster boy for torture: balls, muscles to beat, and to beat on, and the.. penis .. oh yes. :D

MEN ARE SEX OBJECTS 4 SURE

Women being objectified may be bad but it also has a good. It's showing that Females are more attractive, more sexy, better looking, and can have a lot of power and influence over males. Wow what a slap to the guy's face. A lot of times I watch commercials or movies that use a sexy/attractive female to promote the movie or product, I get annoyed because it's almost like they're calling me a stupid dog that doesn't have a brain and will buy it just because of a girl. But it's because of human nature. Historically men has always viewed women as objects. Some examples include the Islamic religion promising 72 virgins, Rome with their obsession with sex often treated females as sex slaves or with lower standards, and even in Greek Mythology where Zeus have multiple female sex partners; some were raped, others belonged to other men.
Christianity was one of the main influencers of equal rights because they believed that both man AND women are created in the image and likeness of their creator. Christianity helped men and women love each other on more of an equal level. Over time, the society starts to accept equality of the sex as a given and norm. Whether you believe in Christianity or not is an entirely different topic. But society has evolved with the idea of equality implanted deeply in it's roots. This is primarily why you notice more and more people fighting for even more equal rights. Honestly though, it will never be equal. Men and women are different and treating both the same will be never be 'equal.'
For example, a woman can get pregnant and carry the child. A man cannot. But the child belongs to both of them. Both the man and women should have the say in abortion (true equality) but he doesn't. Only the women does because it's 'her body.' Or imagine what happens when a man runs out of the house screaming 'she hit me!' versus a woman running out of the house saying 'he hit me!' 95% of the time only the man will get in trouble.
