1. Children Now Study Shows That Media Reinforces Gender Strait Jacket
Highly publicized acts of violence by young males have captured the concern
of the country as child experts nationwide search to understand the
difficulties boys face today. While there is a considerable amount of
finger pointing at the media, there is a dearth of research on the messages
the media sends boys and girls about what it means to be a man in America.
"Boys to Men: Media Messages About Masculinity," a new research report
released on Sept 29 by Children Now, begins to fill in the picture, and
shows that boys need a fuller range of options to grow up healthy in America.
