gaze

the ‘look’, or viewpoint, inherent in particular cultural products. The concept originated in an article, ‘Visual pleasure and narrative cinema’ (Mulvey, 1975), which appeared in the critical film journal, Screen. Mulvey suggested that since most films are made by males, the ‘gaze’ of films is usually to objectify women – voyeuristically and stereotypically – from the point of view of the male spectator. Subsequently, the term has been used in related ways, for example, to refer more widely to the FEMALE GAZE.
