Traditional vs. Non-Traditional Roles
1.Pick a form of media (television, movies, magazines, internet) and find examples of men and women as parents. Perform a content analysis. Note the work/family roles of women and men in each media example you choose. If you choose magazines or commercials, use several, but if you choose movies one or two might suffice.
2.Determine whether each of these examples is traditional or non-traditional. Is there family diversity in these images? Does one type of image seem to dominate? Are there mixed messages? Pay especially close attention to those examples that send mixed messages and those that at first glance might seem to defy traditional roles. An example would be the roles of the women who were mothers in the film “Kill Bill.” A violent encounter between assassins takes place in a kitchen while one of them (the mom) is preparing food for her daughter. Another example is the film “Daddy Daycare” in which Eddie Murphy has a difficult time mastering the basics of caring for 3 year-olds.
3.For your essay (2-3 pages): ?First describe one or two examples that you found that fall into the “non-traditional” category (these might also include mixed messages as well)
?What makes these images/examples “non-traditional?” Do these images signal fundamental changes in society? Why or why not?
