Research proposal: “Depiction of gender in Science fiction Films.” Abstract “Media images of female protagonists reinforce cultural stereotypes about the role of women in world of cinema. These images can have a positive impact on adolescent girls who are making career plans at a time marked by waning self-confidence and a heightened awareness of cultural norms of femininity. An analysis of images of female protagonists in popular films ( e.g. Charlie’s Angels) shows how these images reinforce cultural representations of gender and science and explores the potential impact on adolescent girls’ conceptions of gender roles and their occupational aspirations.”
