Out in the world

Out in the world, women personify or embody all sorts of labels and characters. But on TV, they are still more likely limited to “wife” and “mother.” One of the show that contributes to gender stereotype is “Big Bang Theory.” The shows main ‘male’ characters Sheldon, Leonard, Raj, Howard are a group of scientists and the ‘female’ characters Penny and Bernadette are struggling waitresses. The show bases itself on stereotypes. The scientists are a bunch of nerds who read comic books and watch films to stay relevant in the society, while the women are hot and slim helpless blondes. Penny is the best example of the show objectifying women. She is the one with with a hot body and is always helpless, thus winds up at the guys apartment for help everytime.
