Gender Stereotypes in Media..
While the men are depicted as a handy manly men, heterosexual, and the breadwinner or the family.
What Shapes the Social Construction of Gender?
"Adult and Children are exposed to gender depictions from a multitude or sources, but perhaps the most ubiquitous and stereotyped portrayals come from television" (Allan & Coltrane 1996) pg. 185
"Commercials present condensed typification of gender relations, which men typically shown as active and dominant and women show as passive and dependent." (Allan & Coltrane) pg. 187
the women in the t.v. advertisements are shown as housewives, looking after their husbands needs
2 types of sexism = Hostile Sexism and Benevolent Sexism
Hostile Sexism = Negative feelings towards women
Benevolent Sexism = Chivalrous attitude towards women
Descriptive elements: identifies features of the stereotype
Prescriptive elements: how we think people should behave due to their sex
Structure of Gender Gender Role Stereotypes:
GDP - stand for Gross Domestic Product, which is a measurement of national income and output. It is used in economics to estimate total economic activity individuals in a country or region.
The consequences of this to the vast majority of the world’s poorest are severe.
Inequality can cause political crisis, prevent economic growth and stifles social mobility.
Inequality, as seen throughout the world, has been known to corrupt the political process.
Over the last three decades inequality has dramatically increased in many countries
around the globe.
In 2013, the World Economic Forum’s Global Risk Report rated inequality as one of the top global risks.
Around the world, the Occupy movement’s protests demonstrated the increasing public anger and feeling that inequality has gone too far, and asking authorities to do something about it.
In the US the share of national income going to the top 1% has doubled since 1980 from 10 to 20%.
Gender inequality holds back the growth of individuals, the development of nations and the evolution of societies to the disadvantage of both men and women. Gender issues are not simply talking about women’s issues. Understanding gender means understanding opportunitie s, constraints and the impact of change as they affect both men and women.
