By now you know that nothing you see and hear in the media is an accident. Every person, place, thing and action is deliberately placed within the confines of a frame, for the purpose of making a statement, selling a product or sending a message.

Media both reflects and reinforces social norms. Your earliest views of accepted stereotypical behavior may have been taught to you by family members, but were reinforced largely by movies and television.
  • Keven M. Tavin and David Anderson stress that the manipulative mechanisms of G-rated films teach popular visual culture to youth. They claim that popular Disney films like, Cinderella or Snow White shape children’s perceptions on society, and in so doing, encourage them to construct preconceived notions on the world and how we “ought to” live in it.
