Gender Roles in Animated Cartoons: Has the Picture Changed in 20 Years?
Thompson, Teresa L.; Zerbinos, Eugenia
Sex Roles: A Journal of Research, v32 n9-10 p651-73 May 1995
Analyzed 175 episodes of 41 different cartoons to determine gender representation in children's cartoons. Findings show stereotypical representations of males and females, with males being given more prominence and appearing and talking more frequently. Pre- and post-1980 comparisons show a trend towards much less stereotypical gender portrayal, particularly in female characters. (GR)
