Socialization into gender - day 2

As students enter the room, please fill out the qualitative survey about what your favorite toy was as a child.  If you didn't bring a toy, search for a picture of it on your ipad.  Use that picture to answer the questions on the qualitative survey.

Each person in your group should find an ad in these categories:

Men's jeans
Men's fragrance/cologne
A movie targeting men

 Each person in your group should find an ad in these categories:

Women's jeans
Women's fragrance/cologne
A movie targeting women

After searching for the ads, discuss these questions below:

1. What are the similarities and differences between what is required for men and what is required for women?
2. How do you explain these differences and similarities?

3. Besides gender, how do other factors such as race, class, age, sexuality, and sexual orientation seem to affect the rules of beauty in these magazines? Be specific and detailed.

Here are two wordles hat I created using my students' research and two samples of ads we found:
