Gender stereotypes in the animated world are no better than those in live action films. movies are worshiped by kids worldwide. In all truth, Disney movies are no better than daytime commercials for implementing gender stereotypical images and body forms of animated boys and girls. Through close examination, gender stereotypes in Disney movies are no different than the 4 basic examples previously mentioned. Let’s take the animated movie as an example: the main male protagonist, Tarzan, is portrayed as independent, assertive, intelligent, athletic, competent and stronger than everybody else. On the other hand, Jane, the main female protagonist, is emotional, tentative, romantic, affectionate, sensitive, frail, passive and weaker than Tarzan. Not only that, she is also weaker than all the other male characters, even the supportive ones.
As previously mentioned, the struggle of women to live up to or to fight gendered expectations of leadership positions is well-documented and a topic of strong dichotomies. Some say women are doing quite well as leaders and some articles even suggest women make the best leaders. Fairly recently, the mainstream media has been touting that companies can be most successful if they hire women to lead, while surveys of personnel still reveal that people prefer to work for men (Eagly, 2007).

Gender roles form a fundamental part of everything people do
Catharine MacKinnon develops her theory of gender as a theory ofsexuality. Very roughly: the social meaning of sex (gender) is createdby sexual objectification of women whereby women are viewed andtreated as objects for satisfying men's desires (MacKinnon1989). Masculinity is defined as sexual dominance, femininity assexual submissiveness: genders are “created through theeroticization of dominance and submission. The man/woman differenceand the dominance/submission dynamic define each other. This is thesocial meaning of sex” (MacKinnon 1989, 113). For MacKinnon,gender is constitutively constructed: in defining genders (ormasculinity and femininity) we must make reference to social factors(see Haslanger 1995, 98). In particular, we must make reference to theposition one occupies in the sexualised dominance/submission dynamic:men occupy the sexually dominant position, women the sexuallysubmissive one. As a result, genders are by definitionhierarchical and this hierarchy is fundamentally tied to sexualisedpower relations. The notion of ‘gender equality’, then,does not make sense to MacKinnon. If sexuality ceased to be amanifestation of dominance, hierarchical genders (that are definedin terms of sexuality) would cease to exist.
