Hopefully one or more of these questions will guide you as you view your program, helping you to understand what might be the messages about gender that the show is sending? What is ASSUMED to be NORMAL and TAKEN FOR GRANTED for women/men in their different roles in the show you chose? Are the characters represented in a traditional or non-traditional way for their gender? Do the characters break from traditional gender roles? How is the characters’ gender important or not important to the roles they play? For example, if the gender roles were switched, how would it change the show? What do you see male and female characters doing or saying that reminds you of what you read? Consider the appearance of male and female characters…How does what they look like (or how they dress) affect your impression of these characters? What do your characters value? How do the values differ for men and women on the show? Do the characters’ gender roles heighten the drama, or create funny moments? What do you make of that? If your show is long running, how do the characters change over time? What do you think that means? MOST IMPORTANTLY:In what ways do these characters conform to the gender stereotypes described in your reading, and in what ways do they challenge them?
