Writing assignment. Discuss the two assigned films and the media’s role in both shaping and perpetuating gender norms and expectations. 2-3 pages. Use and apply sociological concepts.
Concepts introduced, including:
“the gendered division of labor, gendered kinship, gendered sexual scriipts, gendered personalities, gendered social control, gender ideology, and gender imagery. This chapter looks primarily at gender imagery and the ways that this imagery is used to construct gender ideology and gendered sexual scriipts.” There are other concepts in the chapter, like hypermasculinity. So find concepts like these in the films.
Watch the Mask You Live In
Watch Killing us Softly
Do NOT just summarize the plot of the movies. Instead apply what we’ve read and learned. This is an exercise in “seeing sociology” and applying it.
