Interesting topic. Some points: 1) Please state your thesis as an argument. I think that I see an effort to do this, but, greater clarity is required. Clearer writing in the research question as well, please. 2) The literature review requires better developed notes, as well as proper references for all of your sources. 3) The Discussion section could be improved by connecting it to a more sharply-formed argument in your thesis statement.

|Literature Review&Theory||Theory or concept:Similar Research studies:1. Gendered inequality regimes and female labour market disadvantage within the New Zealand film industry (HANDY, J., & ROWLANDS, L. (2014). This study is focused on stereotypical role of women.2. 2.

Gender, Work & Organization (Hennekam, S., & Bennett, D. (2017). This study depicts on women should be get equal respect and never compromise with self respect for a boom in their carrier.|
|Results/Findings/ Main Arguments||1 “On the one hand, Hollywood purports to be an industry made up of progressive, open-minded artists who publicly condemn racism and support diversity. On the other hand, it is one of the most powerful and flagrant (even if unconscious) perpetuators of racism through exclusionary and stereotyped storytelling and casting practices” (Serna, L. I., & Herndon, S. (2020), p.3).2. “Stereotypes, however, reduce a person’s identity to these few traits, exaggerating and simplifying them to the point that any change or development becomes almost impossible.” (Antoniou, A., & Akrivos, D. (2020), p.3).3. “Although women were responsible for a number of commercial television’s successful early drama series” () Hallam, J. (2007, p4).Main argument – the impact of stereotype thinking on women, their progress, sacrifice. And this thinking also makes the opportunity limited.|
|Discussion||In my research I will highlight the dark side of the film industry. The depressed state of women. The structural racism with females. Most of the women finished their carrier in film industry as a actress, as well as, the working time is shorter as compared to men. Lastly, I will also be mentioned solutions for this hurdle for women.|
|Counter Arguments or alternative explanations(with the research, not your topic!)||The desire of actresses to get easy and fast success. For example, some people specially, women want to achieve success like elevator, not stairs to get goal.|
|Conclusion||To conclude, the stereotyping also thinking a reason of crime in film industry. Because many actress sacrifice a lot to achieve success and survive in the industry .This information can not be acquired easily. Only because of those victims who rose their power against stereotypical thinking. In term paper I will discuss briefly.|
