Merriam Webster's dictionary defines the word objectify [uh b-jek-tuh-fahy] as "to treat as an object." Objectification is also a central notion in feminist theory. It is to treat a person (usually women) like an object, devoid of thought of feeling. Many women suffer from being seen as mere objects: good for nothing more than to be displayed, pretty for all to see, like a trophy.
