Media is a constant fact of American society - from pop culture to news to social media outlets to advertising.  Messages about social expectations are everywhere in this media, especially expectations of gender. This guide is made to accompany the course "Gender and Media." It highlights resources at NDSU and publicly available about the relationship between gender and media, particularly in the United States. It also includes a selection of mateirals on how media communicates gender expectations to children.
