The male gaze is one concept which opposes the idea of radical feminist thinkers. The male gaze shows woman from the viewpoint of how men wish to see them. Things such ... ... middle of paper ... ...men and are getting the jobs which are predominately male orientated. It may be that nowadays the media offers preferential treatment towards girls and is possibly slightly harsher on males. However the ways in which males and females take account of the media is very different.
Men feel like they can take advantage of women because they are superior, but that is completely wrong. Men should treat women the same way they treat their mothers, with respect. Also, stereotypes and gender bias have driven women who are interested in STEM fields away because they assume that STEM fields are for men only because of the stereotypes. An article stated, “Women have been deemed poor leaders because they spoke about team achievements by saying “we did… rather than I led the team…” (2016, Athena Macrow) Some reasons that make me believe some women do not go into STEM fields even though they are very good in math and science is because they might not be passionate about working in STEM fields or because they are interested in a different field of
It may even be the worst thing possible. What these people are also saying is that woman are less than men and men are the superior gender. One of the reasons they may think that is because they have been raised to be that way, and then they will raise their kids that way and it will just create a cycle of men thinking their better than woman and continue to treat them poorly. Men emulate the examples that are around them and if they are surrounded by men that are the degrading towards women then they most likely will be degrading towards women as well. According to Kimmel men have a “Code” and basically everything in the “code” is to be as far from a woman as
Children who watch these commercials are more likely to believe they should play with certain toys as a result of this commercial manipulation (Martínez, Nicolas, and Salas 191). It 's important to look at the specifics on how advertising companies subliminally affect children 's beliefs about their genders. There are a couple major ways subliminal influence is taking place: gender separation, commercial settings, and types of play. All of these methods of gender stereotyping contribute to instilling outdated ideas and beliefs in children. Distinct gender roles in commercials promote gender selective play, by including either all boys or all girls.
People believe that men are more superior than women because of the media, it becomes the state of mind without any proven information that men are more preferred than women. Since media is such a significant influence on people, it is capable of making things believable without any proof. There are differences in how men and women communicate and connect with other people because women are viewed to be less negotiable and have lower ambitions in their careers (Johns 6). Based on the study, women are seen to be less marketable which shows that men are more confident in representing their idea in the most definite way. Also, men have higher superiority in being assertive in a job.
This not only allows male artists to have a more likely chance of being respected, but also affects the views audiences have on female artists. Sexism is shown in the music industry towards female artists. Sexism towards women occurs when men feel as if they are superior to women. Men have not always looked at women as equals, but more as objects to please themselves. Traditional values teach that men should provide and work for their family while women should just be mothers and take care of their homes for their husbands.
As a result, males tend to be more passive with emotion and have a mentality to be greater than anybody, while females being more expressive and help the man achieve more than they do. Higher self-esteem and more self-identity are some of the advantages of encouraging a non-gender stereotyped environment. Third, our teachers and parents thought us rules and expectations for men and women are very different. Being a girl, we are thought to be “ladies” and aim lower than a man, while our parents and teachers thought boys to be “strong” and to have whoever or whatever they want. This society, most of the girls wants to be a nurse, but not a doctor.
There is a significant lack of scientific research grounding the divide between genders. Professor Anya Hurlbert has found that females prefer redder hues, while it is only slightly so, his theory is that it is a result of the ancien... ... middle of paper ... ...s can become star athletes, boys can become gourmet chefs and the world will continue to turn. A large amount of emphasis is being placed on superficial worries instead of real issues that face the differences between genders. Let children play with the toys that they want, banning a type of toy based on color or gender will most likely result in making the toy even more desirable in the long run. Children will surprise you, when given several female dolls and a single male doll, instead of forming a happy family oriented play, the child instead draws patterns on all of the dolls with Sharpie and turns them into a nudist tribe living their lives out in the bedroom closet.
While on the other hand movies project women as weak and the need to be protected by men, they are shown to be concerned with family and their beauty. These assumptions show negative representations of both gender s in society especially placing barriers for women and not allowing them to develop and stopping them from reaching their full potential in the society. These gender stereotypes have made it more difficult for women to be taken seriously at their jobs. Because their male colleagues are respected more in the companies and they are perceived as dedicated workers. (Benoit, 72).
In Kane’s chapter femininity was more often suppressed and perceived as a bad thing.

Since the beginning of time and even now, men are more valued than women and people especially men are resistant to change that. I think it is a problem because it doesn’t allow women the same opportunities to be able to excel in this world. I think everyone in this world should be treated equally and allowed the same opportunities no matter if they are male or female.
