In this post we will examine how Evelyn’s wardrobe upholds gender stereotypes.

At the beginning of the film Evelyn’s clothing is modest, and while her attire is always modest, the film manages to reduce her clothing. About twenty minutes in to the film Evelyn’s clothes are lost and she’s stuck going through most of the remaining film in her nightgown.

Evelyn’s wardrobe upholds gender stereotypes by leaving her wearing far less than her male counterparts in the film.
