The portrayal of women in the media has never been fair to women in real life. For instance, the 2011 study "Gender in 20th century children's book" was conducted on 5,000 children's books and showed that almost 25 percent of them had zero female characters. Moreover, the Jane.org website stated that in 2013 only 19.5 percent of female characters among all children's media featured women who are working or have job ambitions, yet working male characters took a high percentage with 80.5 percent.Therefore, the role of women and how it is highlighted in media began to be questioned a few years ago and actions about the traditional characteristics portrayed started to change. Some other changes have already started on a bigger media scale such as in Disney movies.
