Storyboard Text

  • Sex vs. Gender
  • Welcome back, everybody! Today we are going to talk about gender! Let's just quickly go over some terms..
  • Ouch! That hurt! But I can't cry in front of my friends...They'll make fun of me. I'm supposed to be tough!
  • Gender & Gender Roles
  • Oh! Archie, are you okay? That was quite the fall off the bus!
  • Gender Inequality
  • Boys -strong -tall -emotionless -play with cars -have prestigious jobs
  • Let's look at some examples from To Kill A Mockingbird.
  • Boys and girls are often treated differently. This is not how it should be, but it still exists today.
  • Girls -quiet -polite -wear dresses -help mom with dinner -stay at home
  • Sex refers to the biological, anatomical differences between the divisions of male, female, and intersex. Differences in chromosomes, genitalia, & other secondary sex characteristics divide us into those groups. Gender is the cultural, social division of how people identify themselves or others.
  • Aunt Alexandra
  • You aren't supposed to be doing things that require pants! (pg. 92)
  • Gender expression is how one presents themselves outwardly. Despite gender ideology and biological dualism, which say there can only be 'male' or 'female', gender is actually on a spectrum. Gender roles are norms constructed by society that decide 'acceptable behaviours ' for individuals, often aligning with gender stereotypes.
  • Uncle Jack
  • You want to grow up to be a lady, don't you? (pg. 90)
  • What's happening right now..?
  • Gender roles and stereotypes support the ideology of patriarchy--male supremacy over women. By men being considered superior to women, it upholds a huge gap in equality. Inequality between genders.
  • No Women on Jury
  • Wait...so what colour dress was Mayella wearing when the incident happened?
  • Oh my word! This is too shocking for a frail female like me!
  • Aunt Alexandra, the pinnacle of femininity, is always telling Scout to dress differently, to socialize with other girls and her (Aunt A) own friends while she is staying with Atticus. Aunt Alexandra doesn't want Scout running around in the yard, because that isn't what girls do. She believes that Scout is not acting how a young lady should.
  • I can't do nothing in a dress.. (pg. 92)
  • After Scout says a swear word, Uncle Jack pulls her to the side to discipline her. He insinuates that swearing and being loud are not 'lady-like' and that she needs to act differently. Uncle Jack is trying to impose the 'girl' gender role onto Scout.
  • Not particularly. (pg. 90)
  • When Scout asked about why women weren't allowed on the jury, Atticus responded with "I guess it's to protect our frail ladies...Besides, I doubt if we'd ever get a complete case tried--the ladies'd be interrupting to ask questions." (pg. 252). Women, under the ideology of patriarchy, would be too frail and incompetent to be part of a jury. So were not allowed.
