Masculinities and Globalization: R.W. Connell (1999)

Leave a comment

Masculinity is defined as having qualities appropriate to or usually associated with a man. The ever-changing persona of what men and women should do in society is changing all the time. Men are thought to be the “boss” in the business world and women should be at home. Globally personas are changing for the good of men and women. Women are not just the Suzy Homemakers anymore in more than just the United States. I do agree with the statement that “popular entertainment circulates stereotyped gender images, deliberately made attractive for marketing purpose.” Some do not think of television as unrealistic and fake. There are individuals that truly believe in everything that comes out of the mouth of actors and host. It is tv and its to make money just like any other job. Putting the ideal housewife would be boring but why not put the hottest one you can find to try to sell cookware. There is entirely to much focus on tv and what it has to offer.
