Abstract [en]

Women are subordinate of men in the society, this is visible both in work places and private lives. Equality between the sexes is daily discussed in politics and the private sphere. As this is a hot topic which is debated within many areas, one of those is film production, we chose to write this essay about how the view of women has changed in movies over time. If equality doesn’t exist within the film media, then it will be hard to change the society’s point of view. To get the answer of our question, we chose to analyze three movie pictures from three different time areas, the choice came to be the three King Kong movies that were produced in 1933, 1976 and 2005.

After we finished analyzing the films we came to learn that society’s view of women has changed drastically between the 1930’s and the 21st Century. The changing progress has been both positive and negative because of the fact that women in today’s society are exploited more as sex objects than they used to be. But even in the 30’s men looked at women in a sexual matter, but in those days the difference between the respectable women and those time’s pin-up girls. On the other hand, equality between the sexes has come a long way in the work place and women have gained more independence in their private lives. But there is still a long way to go before we reach a complete equality.
