Open Access Graduate Research Paper
Television is one of the main socializing forces in our culture today. It can mold opinions and attitudes and it can also help to change them. The portrayal of women on television in programs and commercials is still very negative in 1992. Although many people believe women have a more positive image on television today, many of these appearances are deceiving. Television's resistance of the influence of the Women's Liberation Movement is very evident in its continued stereotypes of women in subservient positions to men. Stereotypes of women are shown by the overwhelming majority of female roles in programs, commercials, and children's productions that still show women as sex objects or housewives.
