In the show modern family, episode 8 named, “The Alliance”, women are portrayed as typical stay at home moms. They cook, get groceries, aren’t very respected, and take care of the kids. In this episode they have Claire the boss of a company disrespected. She’s in a meeting with her dad and her employees and they make fun of her for looking at her dad waiting for his opinion. Another example is women are also portrayed as the stereotypical stay at home mom, always cooking, Jay comes down stairs and see’s Gloria cooking and doesn’t even acnodlege her goes straight to her cooking. Women now a days in television shows are portrayed as the stereotypical stay at home mom, they are constantly disrespected.
One example of when women are portrayed as the typical stay at home mom was when Jay, Gloria’s husband, came downstairs and was already cooking. They disrespect women by just having the do nothing but stay in the kitchen and cook. “Ahh breakfast lasagna great call honey”, is what Jay said as soon as he walks into the kitchen. He doesnt even say good morning just goes straight to talking about her cooking. Tv shows now a days portray women’s only job is staying in the kitchen and cooking
Another example is when Claire, Jays daughter, is in a meeting with her dad and her employees make fun of her and say she can’t make a decision on her own and has to look at her dad for everything. “It’s like every time we throw out an idea you have to see what your dad is thinking.” Claire is there boss and they still disrespect her and say she can’t make her own decisions she has to look at her dad for everything. They finally use a female for an important role and they decide to still have her disrespected. They can’t just have an important women who is respected or a mom who doesn’t have to follow the stereotypes for women, stay at home moms.
From the examples I gave here, it’s obvious that women are portrayed as the stereotypical stay at home mom or are disrespected. This can all be changed if the writers would change this stereotype with women. Also of they finally started respecting women in television shows there would be a conflict in the real world with these problems.
