The characters,
especillay women in this movie are placed by men in merely two different
catagories either based on appearance or actions as “bossy” or “dumb”, which
are few of the most common stereotypes
in the society today. The characters in this movie, especially female who are
described to be bossy are the smart women who are highly educated like Vivian,
enid and the professor. Further
they earn for themselves which is why they are called so. Although Vivian
stands out from the others in being feminist, her character stereotypes
how  a feminist behaves. This can be seen
in one of the movie scenes where Enid expresses her opinion that “winter
semester” must be changed to “winter ovester” as she feels “semen” or men are
given more importance than “ovaries” or females. This is not even sensible, yet
the movie feels the need to portray this stereotype of a typical feminist
through her. This movie portrays feminist to be people who have no clue what
they are talking about, giving  an idea
to the people of what a stereotypical feminists act like.

The stereotype of women being dumb is
seen in the movie through ellie and her sorority sisters, all whom are
coincidentally blonde, love to get their nails done and wear clothes that
exposes their bodies more than the bossy
type of women. Incidentally, all of these fall into the category of a
stereotype of a women. Though there is not a mistake in showing off the bodies,
the women in this movie in such a  way
that they do it to attract the males. Women are primarily shown to attract
males. Several scenes in the movie only reiterate the fact that elle is only an
object and men employ and allow her to study in the Harvard University because
they thought she would have a relationship with them.

The “nice guys”, such
as Emmett, have a part less screen time and wear more casual clothing, while
the “bad guys”, Warner and Teacher Callaghan, have a part of screen time and
are nearly continuously in costly looking suits and in spite of the fact that
they come off as total discourteous men, they are regarded more alluring by
ladies. The men are all appeared to have a few frame of a position of control
whether in the work life or in their individual lives and connections and
utilize this control to get what they need such as Callaghan who continuously
employments Vivian as his individual slave to get him what he needs instep of
any of the men working with him. Legitimately Blonde is a motion picture which
appears small assortment in characters as all of the fundamental characters
displayed are profoundly cliché and all are white guys and females, who are
able-bodied, all are upper-middle course, and all but Enid distinguish as
straight people. This motion picture appears how sexism and patriarchy are
established into society and it does completely nothing to challenge.
