Argosy University Psychology and Gender Discussion

According to Bem (1981), gender roles furnish the material for gender stereotypes. This is because when people associate a pattern of behavior with men or women, they tend to overlook individual variations and draw conclusions about the behavior associated with a particular gender.

In the United States, sexism toward women has always been an issue in advertising, especially in the 1950s. Women have traditionally been expected to fulfill gender-specific roles, such as rearing children, cleaning, and cooking. Today's society has evolved to a place where such discrimination is discouraged and looked down upon. Men too have experienced gender bias, especially those who embraced roles typically associated with women (for example, nursing and stay-at-home dads).

In your exploration of these concepts, your response answer the following:

  • How do images represent genders inaccurately or unfairly? Be sure to define gender, gender roles, and gender stereotypes.
  • How does the media impact people's views about gender stereotypes—the concept of being male or female?
  • A gender stereotype consists of beliefs about the activities appropriate to men or women. Who determines what is appropriate?
  • How does the media influence this perception of appropriateness and gender roles?
