Sam Levin, a reporter for the Guardian US in San Francisco, implies that, “Okatsuka said she had also lost lead Asian roles to mixed-race women who looked much more white. The message she received was: ‘You’re more fitting for this more soft-hearted, kind, kimono-wearing friend of the lead”’ (Levin). Okatsuka finally had her chance to become the lead role, not even a main one and still got it taken for someone whiter. She wasn’t even able to get the main role and came so close to getting lead roles but have lost them for the similar reasons as before. It is hard for Asian-Americans to get main or lead roles.
Another reason that a Boston marriage was useful was because of how uneven the sex ratio was at the time. After the Civil War the number of men had dwindled down and many women were left single. With the men who were considered eligible they had a wide range of flaws including alcoholism and over workers (WAE 271). Educated women started being raised to a higher standard because they were in their own little world full of single women. There was an acceptance because women tended to do better work than what a married woman would do (WAE 272).
Marilyn was a star who gave more of her and money to charities and orphanages. (Meyers) The media had a different view on her than the people did. The media claimed her just as a pretty icon. The media viewed her this way because she played almost every role as a “dumb blonde”.
She is such a stereotypical female character in a negative way. Fitzgerald portrays her as such a pure, pretty, proper character, but she does not really have a personality. She is stereotypically a bad driver, obviously, because she is a woman, but when it comes to her personality she’s just another cookie cutter woman in the 1920’s. Males overlook her because she is a celebrity and obviously she can’t use her head, but they trust her for as long as they still find her interesting. Once they decide that she does not have much of a personality, they abandon her and find someone better.
In the article, “Move Over Boys”, by Sara Maratta, she argues that women have very limited roles in the sports industry, and that the lack of gender equality is present because of the preexisting stereotypes about women’s involvement in sports. According to Maratta “Female athletes are just as capable and accomplished as the men, yet fans do not give them the chance to prove that they deserve to be admired and followed” (Maratta 539). Maratta's point is that our society depreciates women in sports, because we have the misconception that men are suppose to be better than women in everything they do. Maratta also claims that female athletes must look feminine at all times to be acknowledged in the sports industry (Maratta 539). In other words,
There are no images that feature the real skin, curves, or hair of a woman that has not been significantly altered. This retoucher wants people to realize that the ‘perfect’ models they see on the Internet or on magazine are far from perfect, but the industry has gone so off base that it does not matter anymore. They just redefine look and create images with their own idea of perfection (4) With that being said it makes it clearer as to why the standards of beauty is set at a very high bar as it is not even real. How can women want to compete with a standard of beauty that only came to be because of technology? The implications of this is that today, a lot of women have eating disorders (such as: bulimia and anorexia) and/or decide to do cosmetic surgeries in order to try and achieve a standard of beauty that has been implanted through being overly exposed to the images on the internet, but who can blame them when they are so easily accessible and they are constantly bombarded with these
This perspective allows her to be successful in her career field as well. Contrary to this, Rachael’s cocky and shallow perspective does not allow her to analyze situations from a deep perspective. For example, she is always thinking short term, such as when she brags about how she had several husbands. Her attitude, does allow her to be successful in her business. It does nothing to better her character, though, causing her to be the most uneducated and naive of the three.
Companies would ignore the women’s compliments of them being sexually abused and receiving sexual harassment. Its disappointing because this companies where the biggest cleaning companies and still had problems resolving these types of problems. I think it’s unfair because if this same problem happened inside an office or in a higher position, the company would have taken an immediate response to this problem and probably terminated the abuser in that same time. I think these companies de-value women’s work, because they see it as a simple task that they don’t need a degree or certificate to do it. Most of these women are undocumented and most of them don’t know their rights, which companies take advantage of
It irritates me how many athletes are paid for each year. Sure, people like LeBron James, Tom Brady, and Jonathan Toews deserve to be paid $10 to $30 million dollars per year. But other players (average athletes) don’t even deserve to have a single million due to their performances. Just imagine you 're a surgeon. You save dozens of lives in your career and make $187,200 per year.
Men and women have emerged as stars but still financial education is lacking. Even though it is acceptable to be a female rapper, the music industry is much like a cooperate America and there remains a glass ceiling for women. According to Rebollo-Gil & MORAS (2012) General business knowledge of the music industry does not implies that an artist can bring a company record sell. If the individual has just one of the following characteristics: great personal appearance, great music, and a great personality do not mean that they will sell records. It takes an artist to work within their budget, many man hours are used to
