New MTV Show ‘Ladylike’ Breaks Gender Stereotypes [Trailer]
When you type the word ladylike into Google its defined as
appropriate for or typical of a well-bred, decorous woman or girl."
Furthermore, Merriam-Webster defines it as:
1: becoming or suitable to a lady
2: resembling a lady in appearance or manners :well-bred
Just think of the complete opposite and that's what this new hidden camera prank show on MTV is. Ladylike features woman (some who you've seen on Girl Code) who go out on the streets and act the opposite way that people think woman should act.
For example, you see in the trailer the ladies "cackle" at men when normally you would see the opposite. My favorite, is where they confront the stereotype of tampons.
Ladylike challenges the gender stereotypes and norms placed upon woman, but does it with a twist and through a comedic view.
To get an even better understanding of some of the things the ladies will do check out the Supertease trailer below. It looks hilarious!!
Ladylike premieres TONIGHT (6/9) at 10:30 p.m. on MTV.
