Abstract:

The United States heterosexual dance club scene is one that seems to deviate from traditional gender roles, especially in regard to female roles. This study will examine media images of this particular scene through a content analysis to determine the presence of traditional gender roles within this contradictory environment. Do women control their own sexuality or is it an illusion? Further, do women hold the power in these environments? While an existing patriarchal societal structure remains constant, the question is raised of whether or not the actions and self-representation of women who frequent these locations are projecting a level of confidence that allows them to break down pre-existing gender roles or if they are conforming to a standard that society has forced upon them. Further, are these actions and representations seen as sexually deviant or have they become the norm? Future studies into the presence of gender roles need to examine specific women’s attitudes about their own clubbing behavior and the reasons behind their club attendance. This content analysis provides a stepping stone to an in-depth examination of gender roles in club scenes, a focus that has been largely ignored in previous literature.
