(1)Media as entertainment also has a subtle influence on society’s way of thinking
(2)Every message you see or hear will have some impact on you, however small
(3)By including more and more important female roles, the media, including books, movies, television series, and video games can avoid portraying gender stereotypes that ultimately form society’s perception of gender roles
(4) People are constantly exposed to various forms of media. Possibly the greatest influence is the television. The television has become a central part of the American lifestyle. It is an easily accessible, relaxing source of entertainment.
(5)People are constantly subject to the media, whether it be via television programs, newspapers, billboards, or other advertisements. All of this media, intentionally or not, subtly promotes certain beliefs and opinions.
(6)Women contrary to this description are seen as bad,rebellious,submissive, sensitive, and domesticated
(7)Men, on the other hand, are shown as “fearless, tough, decisive, a man of action” (Martin). Men are often portrayed as commanding and authoritative. They have no fear, and never show any weakness.
(8)The fact that the country is predominantly run by males helps “to confirm the image of men as people who make decisions; people with authority who can command respect” 
(9)The media has improved greatly in the past few years. Women are slowly gaining leading roles, and it is not uncommon to see men and women depicted as equals, working along side each other in equally challenging settings
(10)this stereotype becomes embedded in the human mind, and is passed on from generation to generation as an acceptable view of male and female gender roles.


The television influence the minds of the young by filming many more action shows like superman and batman in which the male looks stronger and that he have more control. This makes the children think that man are relatively stronger than females and that the female is the weaker one and the follower of the man. This makes them think that man have the higher authority. The past few years, television have now improved by including woman as the lead roles and depicts the scene of woman and man as equals and that they work together.
