Media Representations of Gender

  • Are these stereotypes changing for women?
  • More women are breaking through the glass-ceiling which is helping to improve women’s position in society – a point pluralists would argue is represented by the media with magazines reducing gender stereotyping by promoting female assertiveness in general but also in relation to sex and relationships
  • Also film and TV roles for women are changing with some women having tougher roles (Tomb Raider) as well as strong female roles in TV drama’s – I can’t think of any
  • Are these stereotypes changing for men?
  • Portrayals of men are changing with the metrosexual man as well as men becoming more body conscious and the use of their bodies to sell products.
