We could well see this representation as a liberation for the woman, her character in the cinema is no longer limited to that of a graceful woman, discreet, constrained by the standards of the society. On the other hand, this new female character is seen as an antagonist and her sexual freedom is a symbol of villainy. Later in the 1950s, Marilyn Monroe, physically inspired by Jean Harlow, became a blonde bombshell and her photograph made the first cover of Playboy magazine. She is then
With her wet red lips and wiggling fanny, Marilyn Monroe was perceived as the sex icon of her age and recognized worldwide as the “sweet angel of sex”. Monroe “was manufactured by no one but herself, self-created from the start.” (35, Harvey) and with her originality, she remained as an indelibly admired figure. The role that made her this much recognized and helped her be one of the most desired women in world was her generic “dumb blonde” character. She was cast as this blonde woman who “[worries] about how to call for the butler without getting someone named Butler” (35, Harvey) and received a great attention from the male perspective. Even though her dumb blonde character does not prove it at the first glance, with this image, Monroe was an answer to the repressed female sexuality and social norms against woman.
One writer, Priscilla Martin believes he is even supported of women and has model the Wife of Bath after himself, “The Wife of Bath shares [Chaucer’s] delight in fictional and narrative diversity. Of the pilgrims she is the closest to Chaucer. Like her creator, she criticizes through comedy, she weighs authority against experience and experience against authority, she is aware of the sexuality in textuality and she jollily subverts the conventions of male authorship.

This essay will focus on Merleau-Ponty’s account of our relations with Others, as well as its relation to Sartre’s philosophy and how effective of a critique Merleau-Ponty offers to the Sartrean understanding of our relationship to the Other. Throughout the essay i shall refer to the relationship between the Individual and the Other, this is simply to mean the relationship found between the ‘I’ and the other humans they interact with who have questionable similarity to the ‘I’. Our relationship to Others is a significant area of discussion because it opens the problem of Other Minds, which entails the idea that I, as an individual, cannot verify that any other individual I interact with is conscious in the same way I am. Both Sartre and Merleau-Ponty discuss the importance of the Other in verifying the existence of the individual, and the extent to which one can be aware of the Other’s internal life, differing significantly on their understanding of whether the world is shared or closed. We will arrive at the conclusion that while Merleau-Ponty presents a successful and effective alternative to the Sartrean account, it is an effective critique because it returns constantly to the damning criticism that Sartre butchers the reality of one 's interaction with the Other and tries to over simplify very complex human behavior, such as social relationships.
But when looked at the these pinup series through the lens of Indian women, it is totally a different thing. Bhanot explores the idea of the unreal expectations of conformity that are expected out of Indian women even today. "There are no depictions of Indian women being so sexually liberated in painting, so I thought this was a great way to do it because it combines artistic influences from both my North American and Indian heritage.” Says Bhanot (Lets ' talk about Sex).

The researcher is researching aspects of private lives of people and putting the findings available to the public, so it gives rise to numerous ethical issues, and the researcher has to be in a position to apply principles, rules and guidelines into the research study. Besides this, the free flowing, flexibility and inductive chanciness distinguish qualitative study.

These themes are important because, as humans, people have an historical existence and therefore can work to alter their world. Freire also describes limit situations within these themes.
