representations of gender
Representations of gender

Stereotypes are narrow, fixed ideas about what certain types of people are like.

Women tend to be show in a limited number of stereotypical roles in films and television, e.g.

  • dumb sexy blondes
  • contented housewives
  • ruthless career women.

Although in more modern times this is changing a little.

See if you can find an example in a film or T.V. for each of these stereotypes.

what about male stereotypes
What about male stereotypes?
  • The Jock- By demonstrating his power and strength, the jock wins the approval of other men and the adoration of women.
  • The Strong Silent Type - This stereotype reinforces the assumption that men and boys should always be in control, and that talking about one’s feelings is a sign of weakness.
  • The Big Shot- This stereotype suggests that a real man must be economically powerful and socially successful.

Voice overs are usually male. It is believed that male voices carry greater authority so we are more likely to buy the product.

See if you can find an example in a film or T.V. for each of these stereotypes.

Famous anthropologist.

Studied 3 tribes in New Guinea in 1930s by living among them.

the arapesh
The Arapesh

Lived in the mountains. Men and women had similar attitudes and actions. They were sensitive to others, had no concept of ownership of land, so there was no fighting or wars.

They were naked until they met Westerners, then they started to cover their private parts.

Men and women both took care of the children. They were not allowed to cry, but petted gently. They were never put down, but cuddled and held

the mundugumor
The Mundugumor

These people were headhunters and here too men and women were similar. Men and women were unemotional, aggressive, and jealous.

They were harsh with children and carried them in scratchy baskets and rarely played with their children.

the tchambuli
The Tchambuli

This tribe lived near a lake. They had male and female personalities, though the women were bossy and the men quiet and emotional and spending hours putting on war paint. They too were headhunters.
