Emily Meath COMM 284 Linda VanBuskirk Final Paper 10 December, 2007 The Representation of Revised Gender Roles in Thelma & Louise Throughout this course we have grappled with the idea of whether or not men and women differ markedly in the ways in which they act and communicate. Many of the studies we read suggested that in many ways men and women’s behaviors differ more by degree than by kind, and that perhaps we aren’t as different as the media typically suggests (Dindia first article). There have been many studies conducted that look at the representation of gender roles and stereotypes throughout the media and the effect that these representations have on the public’s ideas of norms of gender roles and behaviors. For example, the article “Gendered media: the influence of media views of gender” states that “There is by now fairly convincing evidence (Hansen & Hansen, 1988) that exposure to sexual violence through media is linked to greater tolerance, or even approval, of violence” (Wood, J. 1994).

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
