Gender in childrens TV worldwide
Virtually every study of media for children concludes that there are
Strikingly prominent tendencies in childrens programmingeverywhere!
There are more than twice as many male characters than female characters.
In programs deliberately constructed without human actors(cartoons, shows with animals,)
the proportion of females is even lower.
Nearly 75% of all main characters are Caucasian.
Overweight girls or elderly women are virtually absent.
Overall, noticeably biased and distorted representations of reality.
QUESTIONSL From your own observations, without needing to crunch numbers, what do you see
as these striking and prominent tendencies?
Does storytelling depend on stereotypes?
Everything from gender norms/expectations to humor to depictions of family life has changed dramatically in the more than 50 years since the beginning of childrens programming.
