Abstract [en]

Disney's fairy tales and movies are loved all over the world, however, their portrayal of stereotype gender roles and whether these depictions have a negative impact on children can be questioned. The purpose of this study is to gain an understanding of how young girls relate to the stereotypical gender roles depicted in Disney's animated / cartoon children's films.Questions used to achieve this purpose are: Can the informants discern a stereotyping of how girls / women are depicted in Disney movies and in such cases in what way? Is there an acceptance about the gender roles in the Disney films or should the female characters according to the informants be portrayed in other ways? How can young girls be influenced by the ideals presented in Disney's movies? The study is based on qualitative interviews with five children in sixth grade. Themes that steered the interviews have been: Standards and Gender Roles, and Social and Gendered Messages. Finally, the responses are analyzed in order to determine whether or not young girls are affected by these ideals or not, and in such cases, in what way. The results of the study indicate that there are gender norms and stereotype ideals that the informants do not really agree with. On the other hand they think that Disney’s movies should be able to portray certain stereotypical gender roles as it is considered as a part of history that does not really require change.
