Abstract:

In a content analysis of 30 feature length animated Disney movies, we explored stereotyped gender roles and the role of the “sidekick.” We found that females were underrepresented as main characters, sidekicks, and characters overall. Regardless of main character sex, sidekicks were more likely to be male than female.
