Women can be astronauts, doctors, leaders, business people...anything that they set their mind to. Instead in our real culture, we are teaching girls that to be accepted in this society, you have to be unintelligent and sexy. If we instead advertised more positive messages to young girls, I think that our society could benefit by a new generation of empowered females who don’t feel that it is necessary to be sexual. Sexy Inc really opened my eyes to massive amount of advertising that our society has become numb to. We should focus on family as a social structure and teach parents that these outside influences, like the media, celebrities and overly sexual dolls, are affecting young girls and causing them to think that being sexual at such a young age is appropriate.

It could be from her daughter attending school and other girls may not have a parent like Orenstein and do talk to children about weight and appearances without realizing that it could have potential harm to
BEST PARAGRAPH At the beginning of Oates story, Connie is viewed as a young girl with no cares in the world except for the idea of having physical beauty. Joyce Carol Oates wrote that Connie would “look right through her mother” because “she knew she was pretty and that was everything” (323). By including this, Connie is seen as a self-centered girl who only wants people to speak to her if she will make sure they drown her in compliments. She refuses to retaliate to her mother because her mother just doesn’t understand the “hardships” she has to go through to look attractive.

On the other hand, some individuals feel that Disney Princesses are bad role models because of their unrealistic body appearance, telling girls every marriage ends with a happily ever after when you get married at a young age, and saying every girl needs a man in order to be happy. Both sides have valid points but in reality everyone
