  1. The video is funny because it’s a over-dramatisation of female sterotypes. The sketch stereotypes women as simple and that they cannot handle education. The stereotype is not as relevant today as women are supposed to be treated as equals

  2. Why is the video funny? Because it’s wrong

    How does the sketch stereotype women? As silly and unable to learn

    Is this stereotype relevant today? No

  3. Why is this video funny? Because its such an out-dated, sexist video. It demonstartes how sexist the world was back then and how men feared women and their opinion.
    How does this sketch stereotype women?? By saying that they have little ability to learn anything or understand anything and that they shouldn’t be allowed to have an opinion on things because its beyond their capabilities to understand.
    Is this sterotype relevant today?? I believe in some peoples opinion, that it is. They still believe that women are useless but the majority of the population would disagree that women are useless and that they have the same chance of success as men do.

  4. This video is humerous as most people know that women aren’t less intelligent than men and it is acceptable for women to have opinions on issues rather than in the past when women were seen as less intelligent and had lesser rights than men. It is going with the stereotype that women are stupid and that is what makes it funny.

    The sketch stereotypes women as being stupid and far less intelligent than men. This stereotype is not relevent today.

  5. The video is funny because it is sexist to the point where it is ridiculously funny. It shows how sexist the world was back then and how limited poeple thought womens abilities were in general aspects of life.

  6. The video is funny because it is so ridiculously sexist that it is funny at the same time. It shows how sexist people were back then and how limited people found women to be in terms of capabilities in general aspects of life.

  7. Why is the video funny?
    The video is funny because it is so very wrong and sexist in comparison to today’s standards.
    We now live in a world where a sexist stereotype can be used as a joke without too much, if any, offending occuring.

    How does the sketch stereotype women?
    The sketch sterotypes women as people who can’t handle much knowledge before overloading and turning into ‘monsters’ and so they must remain silent unless showing off their sweetness.

    Is this stereotype relevant today?
    No, this stereotype is not relevant today. Serious, degrading sexism is not allowed in today’s society.

    How does Mr Abbott reflect gender stereotypes?
    He appears to be the stereotypical male candidate for PM

    In what ways does Ms Gillard break gender stereotypes? In what way does she reinforce them?
    Julia breaks gender stereotypes because she still shows the same traits as any other male politician. I do not see how she reinforces them.

    This video is funny because it is discriminaion against women stereotypes. the sketch sterotypes women because it was based back in the day when women didnt have much of a say and just had t go by the rules of men being all over overpoweing. It does’t really relae to todays world as much as it use to, yes there are still major sterotypes, girls pretending t be dumb just to please men but it isnt as bad as it use to be.

  9. Why is the video funny?

    Because it shows how ridiculous the stereotypes are and blows them out of proportion to make demonstrate the point that stereotypes are not always infact true it depends on the individual not the group they belong to.

    How does the sketch stereotype women?

    It stereotypes women as uneducated and uninformed and promotes the idea that women can not handle the same amount of knowledge as men and should just sit there and look pretty while not contributing to “male” conversation.

    Is this stereotype relevant today?

    This stereotype is not all that relevant today in Australia but some other countries still inforce a similar stereotype or set of beliefs.
