Television and Social Behavior of Women - September 16th, 2010

Television and Social Behavior of a women


Television has often been criticized for portraying the world unrealisti-cally, in either overly positive ways or in excessively negative and stereo¬ typed ways. Whether or not television reflects our social system accu-rately, however, it is an important contributor to that system, and it is a major socializing force in women's lives.


To the extent that television does not reflect reality, it socializes women
into a fictitious social system, where criminals are always caught, Minorities and the elderly are rarely seen, guilty people always break down under a good lawyer's barrage of questions, problems are solved in an hour, and things usually work out for the best.


We know that women are great behavior imitators. Even infants as
young as 24 years have demonstrated significant and deferred imitation of televised models The question has rarely been whether television is an influence, but in what way and to what extent it affects women.


It behooves us, then, to look carefully at what precisely is being portrayed on television, and, even more importantly, to try to discover the nature and the degree of impact of those portrayals on women's cognitive, social, and emotional development at all age levels. Broad areas of social behavior are discussed separately in the following sections.



Analyses of the data indicated that: -


(1) Television had established itself as a vital source of information for all women, regardless of economic/educational status


(2) Television was a primary source of entertainment for those at home, i.e., the elderly and lower middle and middle class housewives


(3) Upper middle and upper class women felt their needs were not being met by regional television programs


(4) There was a marked difference in the portrayal of women between regional and national network televisions


(5) Regional viewers were concerned with traditional dress of women on television


(6) Advertisements were of interest, but educated women resented advertisements suggestive of women's secondary status.


It was concluded that television should not perpetuate outmoded moral and social values that have been imposed on women in the past


Thanks to the influence of films, fashion and television, women all over India are celebrating various rituals connected with suhag and ceremonies linked with marriage.
