"Yearly, the Media, Diversity, & Social Change (MDSC) Initiative examines inequality on screen and behind the camera across the 100 top grossing domestic films. To date, we have evaluated 35,205 characters across 800 of the most popular movies from 2007‐2015. Every independent speaking or named character on screen was assessed for gender, race/ethnicity, and LGBT status as well as avariety of demographic, domesticity, and sexualization measures. In 2015, we began assessing the portrayal of character disability as well. Clearly, this is the most comprehensive and rigorous intersectional analysis of independent speaking and named characters in popular motion picture content to date."
Titre: Assessing Gender-Related Portrayals in Top-Grossing G-Rated Films Auteur:Smith, Stacy; Pieper, Katherine; Granados, Amy; Choueiti, Marc Sujet:Content analysis ; Gender ; Stereotype ; Children’s films Description:
The purpose of this content analysis was to examine gender-related portrayals in popular G-rated films. Our research questions addressed the prevalence and nature of males and females in general-audience fare. To answer our research queries, 101 of the top-grossing box office films released theatrically in the United States and Canada from 1990 to early 2005 were assessed. The results showed that males outnumber females by a ratio of 2.57 to 1, which has not changed in fifteen years. Females were more likely than males to be young and depicted traditionally. In terms of personality traits, females were more likely to be smart, good, and beautiful than were males.
