Reconsidering Gender Roles on MTV: Depictions in the Most Popular Music Videos of the Early 1990s.
Gow, Joe
Communication Reports, v9 n2 p151-61 Sum 1996
Finds that popular music videos of the early 1990s continued to underrepresent women, with men outnumbering women in lead roles by almost a 5 to 1 margin, and presenting women in a much narrower range of lead roles. Finds also that popular music videos portrayed women in a manor that emphasized physical appearance rather than musical ability. (SR)
