write an article on gender roles in movies and television shows.

Dear student 

The following question tests your creativity and should be attempted on your own. However, here are a few useful hints. 

- We may be living in the 21st century, but we haven't changed the way we portray gender roles in films. 
- Films are still depending on sexualising the female body in order to make their films sell. 
- On the other hand, men are not depicted in such an extreme sexual way since the over sexualisation of the male body is deemed to be "unmanly".
- Film posters quite often display subtle phallic or yonic imagery and associate them with either gender to make them seem sexual and sexually active.
- Within films itself, both genders possess stereotypical behavioural traits. 
- Men are brash, aggressive, dominant and are often portrayed as womanisers. 
- Women are kind, timid and docile.
- If either gender were it to display the other gender's behaviour they are deemed to unmanly or not lady-like. 
-Whilst this gender stereotyping might be don't in a comical way, film makers done understand the consequences it has on society. 
- Society, especially young adults take this as a model by which they must live, often expecting unrealistic results for all their demands from life.
- Films must refrain from harmful stereotypes and portray gender in a way that teaches us to respect one-another.
