Listen to some of the hit songs – especially love songs – from the fifties and sixties, looking for unconscious/implied stereotyping of both genders. When you have collected ten or twelve examples, select five of the best and discuss them in your blog, embedding parts of the songs. Imagine that the gender roles in the lyrics were reversed. Invite your readers to┬ápost comments to your post on the question, “Is there stereotyping in today’s hit songs?”
