Superheroes & Princesses- The Effects of Media on Gender Identity
Flickr Creative Commons - by woodleywonderworksMedia is the vehicle of pop culture. Music, television, internet, video games, and movies spend billions of dollars to grab the attention of young people.  In the meantime, these forms of media send powerful messages about what it means to be cool, attractive, and even male or female. Learn current research on the effects of media on gender roles from preschool to high school and how simple classroom discussions can help empower young people to understand their own gender identity.
