I just watched a PSA from the Geena Davis Institute on Gender in Media and went to check out their website. Good research studies there for the next time someone scoffs and says there are plenty of girls in kids' media. Or (more typically) there are too many girls in cartoons.

There are studies on what occupations characters have, how many girls there are in media, and industry leaders' perceptions of gender depictions. I haven't had a chance to do more than glance at them, but it looks like a lot of good stuff there.

I'm especially interested in the "Guess Who?" series, "which is a series of videos and curriculum designed to teach young children to challenge gender stereotypes."

Fascinating!
