Abstract

An in depth analysis is given regarding how fatherhood was perceived through media, advertisements, and the general public. Using a gendered scope, father had different representations depending on the years that ranged from him being a "manly man" to an incompetent dope. Analyzing these differences and how the fathers before them were treated allowed for these new fathers to face an ever pressing problem. They were not only pushed to be like the fathers before them, but now they are pushed to be a "family man". These views have many conflicts that arise and put much stress upon father.
