Gender Roles in Disney Movies
In this student project, the way Disney movies often portray gender roles is explored. Through pictures, clips, and audio tracks, the video clearly paints a portrait of old-fashioned gender roles, where women are expected to be beautiful and subservient, and men are strong and powerful.
Do you agree that this is how Disney movies portray gender roles or is this video offering a skewed perspective? How do these portrayals affect childrens burgeoning notions of gender identity?
