Her small part in the director John Huston’s drama garnered her a lot of attention. After that film, she was then cast in another film called All about Eve. She impressed audiences and critics with her outstanding acting and blithely personality.

The 1950s was her big time of fame that resulted in her earning many different awards.
Eliza Haywood’s Fantomina highlights and encourages the double standard of men sleeping before marriage and women waiting for marriage. Beauplaisir is characterized as the typical aristocratic man of the eighteenth century. He has some goodness as well as being restless in his relationships. This is significant because of the double standard for women in the eighteen century. Men could have sexual relations with as many women as they wanted but women were only considered acceptable if they waited until their wedding night to sexual relations with a man.
Hedy Lamarr wasn’t stupid she knew who she was as a person and what people thought of her. Lamarr was determined and driven to do the everything in her power to break the stereotype of woman only being good for cooking, cleaning, and in her case a dumb actress. “During the 1940s, Hedy was the star most wanted woman to look like, at least according to plastic surgeons, who reported that large numbers of female patients asked for her profile” (Sarvady 123). Lamarr was so popular other women wanted to look just like her. In the end Hedy Lamarrs life was one that everyone will remember along side her
“I raise up my voice-not so I can shout, but so that those without a voice can be heard...we cannot succeed when half of us are held back.” ― Malala Yousafzai. Malala was born on July 12, 1997, in Mingora, Pakistan, where girls were restricted from going to school, and therefore treated unfairly. Unlike anyone else, Malala was not afraid to speak out against the Taliban. Unfortunately, she was shot in the forehead on the way back from school on a bus.
In Beauty (Re)discovers the Male Body, Susan Bordo confers over the male body and its impression on society and in the model industry, additionally how its discernment diverges from women. Bordo references her first male underwear advertisement where she spiels how the ad itself was distressing for herself and the model. She gabs on the guess that he was trying to be observed as one kind of man though tittering with the contrasting type. Thereafter, she alludes to the film The Full Monty where a group ex-metalworkers compose a strip show where women judge men faultlessly how women are judge even when unexposed. Ergo, she begins making mention of how male ads are assumed to appeal both heterosexual and homosexual males to represent and intrigued
Her roles developed from just the sex object to eventually creating a type, ‘The Girl’ which Marilyn quickly became associated with. The roles that got her noticed by critics where roles playing sexual opportunists. She played Gold Diggers in The Asphalt Jungle, All About Eve, Gentlemen Prefer Blondes and How To Marry A Billionaire and in Niagara she played a sexual predator. In Gentlemen Prefer Blondes she played Lorelei Lee, which became her most famous role of a series that helped define Marilyn’s public persona.

Society’s perception of male beauty isn’t tied as inherently to age as it is for women, in that cosmetic companies continually market products to consumers through the male gaze. Women are constantly defined by their appearance, which is problematic in and of itself, but this problem is exacerbated by society’s rampant ageism which tells women they must maintain youthful, feminine looks as they
Women often feel in relationships they are not as good as the opposite sex and their insecurities make them feel less powerful and taken advantage of. The way this ad is laid out and has the woman positioned, the way she gleams at the camera giving the image power, enhances her beauty and overall influencing young women. This ad uses their logo, bottle, and company in an effective way of targeting young women in relationships by giving off a feeling of power and having a positive demeanor. Lust, passion and guilt are shown between the models in this
Is it JUST a Runway? “From sea to shining sea ”… Beauty pageants are thought to be a sign of skinny, tall, young women… “She reigns over all she sees”… but there’s more to it than swimsuits, flashy dresses, and pounds of hairspray… “She’s beauty and she’s grace…” From my experience, even in high school, women are seen as sex icons and symbols of lust, but women are so much more.

American Female Writers The role of the American woman and how she perceives herself has continued to change throughout American history. I have chosen three very different but equally influential women for their times. First, there is Sarah Orne Jewett, who wrote of gender roles and coming of age.

Often we are bombarded with negative propaganda and negative messages that can lead to hating our self-image and lowering our self- confidence. It is alright and healthy to look like a woman, curves. It is not healthy to look emaciated and malnourished. Beauty is not about how many ribs you can see, or how bony your legs are.
“There is nothing more rare, nor more beautiful, than a woman being unapologetically herself; comfortable in her perfect imperfection. To me, that is the true essence of beauty.” This beautiful quote stated by Steve Maraboli is directed towards women, but instead should be directed towards both the male and female audience. Body shaming has been around ever since we can remember. In the early 1900’s was when the perfect body image movement really started.
"If you ask men about their body image, they will tell you they look better than they do. And if you ask a woman, she'll tell you she looks worse", (Gloria Steinem, 2014). This quote explains the mentality men and women have about body image. Nowadays, there are many impacts on women based on their bodies than there is on men.
