La representación de las latinas en los medios de comunicación estadounidenses: De trabajadora del hogar a mujer hipersexualizada

by Alamillo, Amairani

Abstract

This thesis is about the history of the representation of Latinas and maids in American Media and how a modern sitcom, Devious Maids, stereotypes women as "The Female Clown" and "The Dark Lady." I analyze scenes of Devious Maids in order to emphasize the way the employers treat the main characters, which happen to be Latina maids. I argue that there are "real world" implications for women based on how they are represented in the media. For example, the hipersexualization of Latinas fosters domestic violence amongst Latinas.
