Must monsters always be male? Huge gender bias revealed in children’s books

Taylor, A. The resulting word clouds show what a wide world of adventure boys are invited into in books, F. Gazda, and how narrow in comparison the offering is for stories with female characters. How does this formula influence career aspirations.

Sex Roles. The impact of gender role stereotyping in children's literature has been examined in numerous studies over the past two decades. The purpose of this study was to determine whether the sex bias portrayed in picture books is still as prevalent as in the past. In particular, we were interested in whether the frequency of males and females in pictures and their characterizations had changed. One hundred and fifty children's picture books were analyzed for gender role content. It was found that while the frequency of males and females depicted in the stories had indeed become more evenly distributed over the past 50 years, the roles played by males and females have changed in a more subtle way. Girls are now being pictured in more instrumental activities, but are as passive dependent as 50 years ago.
