Scholar Analyzes Gender Dimorphism In 'Frozen'

Posted: Updated:

Disney's newest animated film, "Frozen," got rave reviews and even debuted at the top of the box office. However, Disney is being studied and critiqued on how the characters look.

The criticism aims especially at the female characters.

A sociologist at the University of Maryland recently wrote a blog about what he calls "gender dimorphism."

He basically points out that the female characters' eyes are even bigger than their wrists. He went on to say that this symbolizes Disney's idea that "Giant eyes and tiny hands symbolize femininity in Disneyland."

Mentioned in this small wrist phenomenon are other Disney movies, like "Tangled" and "Gnomeo and Juliet."
