Transcript of "Photo Essay Hannah Audet P 1 2"
In To Kill a Mockingbird, gender roles are not
interchangeable, and males and females each
have their roles. Scout received negative
attention because she is a tomboy, and
everybody is trying to get her to act like a
lady, something she is supposed to be. I
chose gender stereotyping because I would
like to learn the reason for this segregation,
because men and women are equal, but they
are not always seen that way.
These are pictures of what the ideal
young boy and girl of the 30s looked
like. The girls wear dresses (1st
picture) or jewelry and dress-up (2nd
picture) and the young boys wore
pants and other clothes that gave
them the ability to play and get dirty.
This is a stereotypical
housewife from around the
50s and 60s. Most men
expected their wives to be
ready with food and a clean
house after work. Now this is
not as expected, because
men stay at home as well as
women, although it is not as
Humans are not the only
things that are gender
stereotyping; computers do
it too. Most people would
not search “iron my skirt”,
but rather “iron my shirt”
because generally, a man
would not be searching for
ironing. Usually ironing
and other housework is a
Many jobs in this day and age,
especially with the recession,
are open to both men and
women, but some jobs are not
as socially accepted. There
are many male doctors, but not
as many nurses, and male
nurses are excluded, and
might be the odd man out at
work, segregated from the
For the better part of the
century, females did not hold
jobs or positions that gave them
authority over men. Generally,
the women were secretaries
and answered phones, made
appointments, and basically did
anything their boss needed
them to do. Now, the roles are
switched in many places, and
although it is not yet accepted
by everyone, it is becoming
Laundry and other housework
is usually a woman’s job, and
boys and men do not usually
do it. Work around the house
is left up to women to teach
their daughters, while earning
money and working outside of
the house is for the men.
Generally, men are seen as
being superior to women,
and able to hold higher
positions and do things
The majority of sports,
and amateur, are split
into male and female
teams. Men and
women each have their
own teams, and some
sports are not even
open to both sexes.
I think that in the future, men and women will
be more equal because of the modern
advances, but to some people, I think men
will still be seen as better.
