Disney and Sexism

Here is a video that I found on youtube, and its about Disney and its use of sexism in its movies.  Disney is a popular company and well known movie maker that has produced several classics and has create well known iconic characters.  The sexist messages are evident through out the movies that it has produced by illustrating how women should act and look like, as well send messages to boys on how they should look and present themselves.  This video does a good job at capturing four point about sexism: Images of masculinity, men and their women, bodies and physical prowess, and violence and dominance.
