Chapter 4 discusses the differences between SEX and GENDER. Sex relates to the physical or biological differences in human bodies. Gender is something that we learn from the society that we grow up in. This chapter focuses on some specific areas which we will discuss this week.
1) Relate mass media to gender socialization.
Discuss how women and girls are portrayed less frequently in the mass media than are boys and men. When included, they are often subordinate and/or hypersexualized. Half of commercials aimed at girls spoke about physical attractiveness.
2) Toxic Masculinity: Explain how patriarchy negatively impacts boys and men.
How does the media add to this problem? Give examples from your own life and/or what you see in society.
3) The Power of Education: Relate education to the empowerment of women.
Why are women two-thirds of the 775 million (that’s 511 million) people in the world who cannot read or write? In countries where women’s average level of education is low, they have little social or political power. Explain this and why it is a problem.
