Willa Cather writes, "…Tiny Soderball was to lead the most adventurous life and achieve the most solid worldly success" (142). This quote once again expresses the theme of human spirit triumphs over adversity because Tiny was only a young hired girl at first who just wanted to help provide for her family, but later grew successfully despite the poor
Perhaps, what launches her into the auteur threshold might be sexist; there are no other female directors that have achieved her level of notoriety. “She has been praised repeatedly—and somewhat ironically—as the most ‘masculine’ of feminine directors working today, chiefly because she continues to display a fascination for action narratives and for characters caught up in violent conflict” (Platzner). These themes of masculinity are clearly observable and prevalent in The Hurt Locker and Detroit. Masculinity alone, however, should not be the factor that allows a female director to be considered an auteur. "She is not just a woman, but she often directed [her movies] in a way that makes feminist film critics certain that she was secretly speaking to them, stretching out the homoerotic scenes, or casting leading ladies with butch haircuts who know how to hold a gun
Her astonishing legacy was not handed to her on a silver platter; however, she worked hard to earn her title as the Queen of country music. McEntire’s great work ethic and big heart made her the woman she is today. This award-winning, chart-topping artist has also acted in films, her own sitcom and developed several
But she was charismatic and powerful, and could sway a losing battle to success with her arrival. She was fiercely respected by the Band and Cybil looked up to her in her youth, even though their relationship was somewhat distant. Nobody could really understand what a woman like Luna had seen in Paul, but not a soul had the heart to ask. She had no other long term relationships. The Band of bandits and ruffians Cybil had been born into, The Band of the Coyote, was a rather successful group of criminals that had been established 10 years prior to her birth.
Other than that, I was happy to see her finally standing up to herself when she sarcastically expressing her gratefulness to both Dale and Linda for saving her from marrying Dale at her dinner party. However, there were a few things about Aria’s character that I do not like. In the chapter where she considered Justin’s proposal, she wanted him for herself yet after everything dawned to her mind, she had second-guessing her decisions and feeling muddled with her feelings for him. Aria’s character was described as a career woman who worked herself to be at a top position in the company for the past five years. However, I found it irresponsible that she, after meeting Justin, had disregarded her work by being tardy and especially her inability to be professional at the workplace.
Euripides created an unusual art work that left people mouth-opened. It was criticized and dissed during its time since the audience witnessed a very odd ending. The fact that Medea was really clever and powerful made it different as well. During those times, women had no role in the society. Women were just supposed to serve their husbands and take good care of the children.
Considering other movies from the last few years such as Non-Stop or The Wolf of Wall Street it is easy to spot that men and women are still often presented in a typical gender manner. Nevertheless, recently the representation of female characters has also been improving and women are gradually becoming more prominent in the movie industry. In Hollywood, there was a certain rise of casting women as the main characters who take matters into their own hands and are no longer waiting for men to save the day. By making female protagonists as strong and independent, the stereotypes as women being weaker and submissive to men are subverted. What is more, movies whose protagonist is a woman often present the reversal of archetypal gender roles.
This is important because it proves that she really was an ambitious leader. Cleopatra was in it for the fame and glory, as well as for the power that came along with it.This made her a fierce and respected leader of her time. About a millenia and a half years later came another of the world 's most famous female leaders. Although she was more a teenager than a woman, Jeanne D’Arc, known as Joan of Arc, was one of the most legendary female figures ever. Joan barely even had a childhood.
Mayella has worked to be a respectable woman, but many things hold her back: her dad, her looks, and her personality. Being a woman and living the way she does, Mayella’s life is ignoble, but the way she treats people makes her deserve the life she has been given. For example, Mayella forces a man to lie, which results in her flaws come around to hurt her, and her to not qualify for a chance to be respected. During Tom’s trial, Tom said, “...scared I’d hafta face up to what I didn’t do.” (page 265), and that’s because Mayella indirectly took an innocent man’s life, which makes her personality even more unattractive. Although women are treated very unequally, some women, like Mayella, don’t deserve to be treated
Babs on the other hand was very smart, intelligent and was she looked very like her mother when she was her age. Some of the major characteristic about Mrs. Slade is that she is very cocky and she likes to hold grudges.

Tina Turner did not bloom as well as a solo artist but she always gave her fans more and more music to love. When Tina Turner got on stage it was like a whirlwind. She has so many artist that dedicate their career and achievements to her for her integrity and strength. The artist that I believe is most like her today is Beyonce. Beyonce is the diva she is fierce and unstoppable.
and is often remembered by her haunting life which lead up to her fateful demise. People always comment about what a sad life she held, although Judy herself didn’t see it that way and her children continue backing that claim. She appreciated what she accomplished in her life, the opportunities she was given, but rest assured, she most likely wouldn’t have minded if things turned out somewhat differently from how they eventually did. Young Frances Gumm started her career in vaudeville where she wooed crowds with her overwhelmingly strong, mature voice. It was obvious to Frances’s mother, Ethel Gumm, that out of her three daughters who had been more or less forced onto stage, that her youngest girl had the most potential and

Aaliyah could 've been standing still as one of the most known pillars of R&B if she 's alive today. The untimely demise of this very talented artist has been so infected it brought the rise of women dominating a man-saturated genre. Truthfully, the thick voice, the always-on-beat dance moves and the sheer passion in singing made Aaliyah a superstar of her generation. Despite the fact that she 's been missing since 2001, the presence and musical mark that Aaliyah has left to serve as inspiration to a various lot of rising stars and her tracks are far well-remembered as sound tracks of modern relationships, young love and heart-wrenching separations. There are no words to explain how badly the current music industry needs an Aaliyah right now and all we can do is to succumb to the truth that she 's never coming back and her legacy is all that we can hold on to.
