Abstract [en]

Due to criticism towards Disney concerning reproducing gender in a stereotypical way in their animated movies, we decided to investigate this since Disney has affected both our own generation and many to come. The investigation focused on gender, particularly on the depiction of women. It also investigated gender roles from a perspective of time by choosing 14 movies; at least one from each decade, starting from the first movie, Snow white and the seven dwarfs from 1937, to the last one, Tangled from 2010. The investigation discovered that women were underrepresented and often depicted in a stereotypical way, meaning that they were always beautiful and almost always rescued by brave princes. Female power was always depicted as negative. However, changes in how the movies depict gender over time have been found, for example, women have become more active and have started to participate in fight- and career related issues, even rescuing the men at times. When it comes to the princes, they turned out have more personality in the later movies and they did not always have to be handsome to gain true love. However, these changes are mostly beneficial for men since the women still have to fulfill the ideal beauty and can still not fulfill their dreams on their own.
