Gender Portfolio

May 8, 2009 sfoshee

This gender portfolio introduces many different ideas and concepts from a wide variety of media related items. The items range from romantic movies to vulgar cartoons to male interest. Many gender stereotypes are represented and forced upon the people of a culture through the media and other outlets. Gender stereotypes are often considered created by the media. Males are portrayed as autonomous and emotionally disconnected. Females are portrayed as needy, emotional and dependent.

                All my life I have been aware of the expectations of women and men and how I never quite followed the gender rules set by my family, my friends, and the media. Everywhere I look I notice gender stereotyping and in each item I found the gender stereotypes were prominent in different contexts including work, play, and education. The concepts get moderately repetitive, but it is apparent that everywhere in the world we are approached by the necessity to following the social norms

The reference continually used is the textbook Gamble and Gamble. This book refers to every gender concept imaginable and was the best refernce available. Hope you enjoy the items and the fun links attached!
