Abstract:

A number of studies have analyzed how political executives are portrayed in television series such as The West Wing, 24, and A Very British Coup. However, these series reinforce the idea that even the fictional world of politics is a male-dominated arena centered on presidents and prime ministers from the United States or the United Kingdom. There have been a few notable exceptions such as the political series, Commander in Chief, about the first female president in the United States, a female prime minster in the United Kingdom in The Amazing Mrs. Pritchard, and even a future female president in Battlestar Galactica. So far, the United States has not elected a female president and the next female prime minister has yet to appear in the United Kingdom, but these political dramas have provided interesting insights about how female politicians are portrayed on television. In contrast, a number of female political executives have emerged around the world, yet, there is little information about the representation of female leaders in foreign television dramas. Although political dramas often chronicle fictional characters, events, and political issues, the way a fictional leader is portrayed matters and conveys several messages about female politicians to television viewing audiences. This paper examines whether the television series Borgen (Denmark) and Daemul (South Korea) utilize stereotypes and gender framing in their portrayal of fictional female leaders and the implications these dramas might have for real-life politicians in these countries.
