Transcript of Gender Analysis on Film and TV

Are you surprised by these statistics?
Why do you think that everything in the media has to be sexualized for a product or movie to sale?
Do you think that to some point it's our fault as women for letting the media use us as objects?
Gender Analysis on Film and TV
Statistics of women in film
The film industry is seen as not only pandering to stereotypes, but also discriminating against older women in leading roles.
The of roles for leading women is far lower than that of men.
The use of body doubles for actresses who have less than idealized body proportions is thought to contribute to unrealistic expectations both men and women have about women’s bodies.
"Television not only fails to accurately reflect the world in which young people live, but it also sends a message that some groups of people are more valued by society and worthy of attention than others" Children Now

The history of TV
In the first commercial we barely see the short haired blond girl, in the second commercial however, the girl is what makes the whole commercial.
Advertising more than the product. In this case the "girl"
The "HOT" factor.
Slow motion (seductive).
Most heroes and protagonists are male
Studies indicate that nearly three-quarters of all female characters in sitcoms,
The problem is not only the images that are portrayed, but also those that are not. For example, women’s sports receive far less air time than men’s sports on network and cable programming.
Fully dressed
what do you think makes the perfect "hot pockets" commercial?
In your own words, how do you feel TV and movies have failed you?
Think -reality TV or commercials?

The Bechdel test
Prostitution and money
The female protagonist
The majority of women in the film are prostitutes, and the film's male characters uniformly grope and harass them - when they're not engaged in frequently demeaning sex.
There are a number of female employees glimpsed on the brokerage floor, one of whom volunteers to have her head shaved in return for $10,000, which she reportedly plans to use on breast implants.
The male protagonist
And then there are those bankers. They literally beat their chests and howl like wolves at the prospect of money or sex (the two are ever-linked, it seems) even while adjusting their toupee or popping tranquilizers. They consider themselves alpha males, warriors, as their leader Beaufort whips them into a frenzy of excitement for the latest opportunity to make money. But the truth is that they are weak, ridiculous, boys playing at being men.
Jordan's Cheating
The Drugs
(Maggot Robbie) remains an object and little else throughout the film. She exists only in relation to Jordan.
She exchanges dialogue only with Jordan and seems to have no life of her own. She talks mainly of gardening and maintaining the house, and of the other women Jordan is sleeping with.
Nudity was reported a requirement for Maggot Robbie, Leonardo DiCaprio however, is always fully clothed.
The film failed the Bechdel Test and is entirely focused on its male characters.
Rated R films

The child
How film and TV affect us
Based on the true story of Jordan Belfort, from his rise to a wealthy stockbroker living the high life to his fall involving crime, corruption and the federal government.
30.8% of speaking characters are women.
28.8% of women in film wear sexual revealing clothes as opposed to 7.0% of men.
Percentage of female teenagers displayed to nudity has increased 32.5% from 2007 to 2012.

Violence- As scientists and doctors have proven through careful studies and research, the impact of violence really depends on the personality and character traits of young adults and children. A child or teenager who has been brought up in an abusive family and has been hit as a child is more likely to dash out at other people especially if they have just seen a very violent films.
On the other hand, there are films that will serve as your sources of information and knowledge.Research-based movies give you influence of research and inventing new things. A historical movie tells about the ancient times and their lifestyle which urges man to adopt or in some manner, influence from them..
The highest rated films are the ones that
bloom in the box office, and most of them are being watched by teenagers over the age of 17.
What is your opinion on the age of the rated R films!?
The bull- Often represent rage, stubbornness, uncontrollably, strength, typical manliness, and wild anger of which has huge potential for destruction.
The black maid- A symbol of black women working during the 80s.
Money- A symbol of control and power, money can get you anything.
Prostitutes- Desire and lust.
Parties- Fun, no worries about tomorrow.

Fueled by the U.S. and Europe, the Oscar-nominated film has raced past the
$300 million
mark at the worldwide box office.
The effects
One estimate places the number of hours of television watched by the average american child at 5000 hours, including 80,000 advertisements, before kindergarten age.
Numerous studies conducted in many countries have found that nearly three-quarters of women reported feeling bad about their bodies after looking at images of models in magazines and advertisements. A Canadian study found 5 and 6 year old who reported having dieted for the purpose of achieving an ideal body. Between 5-10 million Americans have eating disorders, nearly all girls and women. Another 7 million have plastic or cosmetic surgery every year.
Sexualization of content is only increasing. The American Academy of Pediatrics reports that of the approximately 14,000 references to sex a teen will see each year in the media, only 165 will contain any reference to delaying sex, using contraceptives, or avoiding sexually transmitted diseases.

Mood of the poster- fun
biography, Crime.
I believe in equality, I believe in hard work and I believe in films and TV. I am smart enough to know that not everything in the media is true, and my only hope is that you are just as smart. Take from the media- (film, commercials, reality shows) what you believe benefits you and not what fails you as a person and an audience.
The real Wolf of Wall street
Women of color
Sexual objectification in TV
