Disney Rejection Letter, 1938

Photo of a rejection letter sent by Disney in 1938, stating that: "women do not do any of the creative work in connection with preparing the cartoons for the screen, as that work is performed entirely by young men. For this reason girls are not considered for the training school." This aligns with Lippi-Green's (2012) findings that Disney presents a clear, firm division between genders in lifestyle and life choices, and is a salient example of this ideology of division found in the real world.
