From adolescence to adulthood, people consume television. The average American consumes 218 hours of television per month, making it instrumental in the formation and perpetuation of social constructs. In this study, we looked at how Latina women are impacted by the way they are portrayed in television. By conducting an online survey, we collected data from anonymous sources pertaining to their consumption habits and opinions on how they feel Latinas are portrayed. Using SPSS software, we ran descriptives and t-tests to determine percentages portrayed of these demographics. Because television is consumed widely by Latinas, how they are portrayed can have profound effects on their self-image and aspirations.
