She has taught at Texas State since 1988 and developed the undergraduate course in gender, race and media in 1992. She has published articles and presented papers on the subject since the 1980s. She has looked at gender differences among child characters in prime-time television, stereotyped messages in teen magazines and whether or not advertising spokes - characters have to be male to please audiences (they do not).
