This video was created for a psychology class project. The main point of this video is not to bash Disney, but merely to highlight the stereotypical gender-roles, the construction of femininity/masculinity, and the portrayal of dominant/single women in its animated feature films. It is obvious that Disney did not invent these stereotypes, but rather reinforces them in society. Media plays a huge role in socializing individuals. That is, conveying to males and females certain beliefs, values, and customs to live by. Disney was the main focus of this project because this socializing process starts at a very young age. Disney is at the pinnacle of the children's media industry. No other company has the influence or impact that this multinational conglomerate has.
