Despite the recent advances by the women's movement; the portrayal of female leads in cinema often reflects an antiquated and stereotypical view. This thesis will examine three feature films from Pixar Animation Studios that helps to illustrate why women continue to be viewed as a Second Sex even in our modern society. By further understanding the conscious or unconscious motivations of sexist storytelling, it is the intention of this paper to create an alternative awareness based on the acceptance and true equality of gender in promoting better storytelling and character development.
