A Dissection of Grey’s Anatomy

  • Danielle Barrios


This paper, qualitative study, used field observation to acquire data and published data to assert findings. The author watched a ubiquitously popular television show in the United States and compared results from a 2003 book entitled “Women, Men and Society,” in which authors found a disproportionate amount of female television roles to be sexualized and only cast by good looks, to find a linkage between statistical facts of the turn of the century and current findings based on past data. This paper observed four episodes and analyzed all major stereotypical roles ascribed to each actor and later the author compared data in a 2003 book.
