Men and Women on the Tube: Sex and Sex-Stereotypes on Television.
Hesselbart, Susan
Televised sexuality is examined in the context of gender stereotypes for three recent, "new adult" programs which have been billed as departures from traditional treatments of sex roles and/or sexuality: "All That Glitters,""Soap," and "We've Got Each Other." Using these examples, the paper focuses on three main areas: (1) characters and settings are described with reference to sex roles on television; (2) interpersonal relations between women and men are examined; and (3) sex and gender are analyzed in reference to sex stereotypes in television characters and their interaction.
