Women are always underestimated, and belittled. If a woman wants to pay for the dinner let her pay as long as she is capable then it’s fine. Feminists believed that social movements are a good place to start when considering the intersection between the personal life and politics, not because it was the Women’s Liberation Movement that first suggested that the personal is political (Gemma Edwards). Women are oppressed by the false beauty standards imposed by men. The root of all the insecurities women feel is the beauty standards, and people have the guts to say on that one should be contented in her/his physical appearance when you set a standard and the one who doesn’t meet them are treated ugly and differently.
Is There a Social Pressure on Females to look beautiful? Societies today always push on females to get the perfect look in peoples’ eyes without caring about females’ feelings. Unfortunately, societies care about the look instead of the personality. People do not understand the differences between females, and they think they all have to be pretty. This huge pressure can make females unconfident, sad, uncomfortable and it can make them hurt or hate themselves for who they are.
Cathy was born a Catherine, the name meaning “pure” which she is shown not to be from the very beginning. She is described to go from “a pretty child” to a “pretty woman,” oozing innocence and delicacy. However, even as a child Cathy produced a “disturbance she distributed so subtly” (73). Her immorality becomes clear to the reader when it is said that “Cathy learned that by the manipulation and use of this one part of people she could gain and keep power over nearly anyone” (75). Here we see that Cathy, even at a young age, is able to see within people and use their weaknesses against them.
Pride and Prejudice also deviates from social conventions at that time because Austen writes Pride and Prejudice as a social satire and makes humor of the traditional roles of women. Compared to other novels with female characters at the time, such as Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein, Jane Austen’s female characters in Pride and Prejudice break the social norm for women and do not portray them as passive. Pride and Prejudice, published in 1813, is about five sisters whose mother is desperate to see them married off. The book deals with themes that include love, reputation, and class. However, Pride and Prejudice received much criticism for being a novel full of female characters that fit the social norms for women in the 19th century.
The notion of ‘beauty doesn’t matter’ in this day and age is exploited and persecuted where the women who don’t abide by modern standards of beauty are framed as the ‘other’, similar to the creature. It is the ongoing relevance of Shelley’s nineteenth century work via strongly exercised misogyny accentuated by fragile masculinity that feminist interpretation is
Women of the Renaissance I would like to think that women had some sort of influence pre Renaissance that helped with empowerment and confidence. The unfortunate truth is that pre Renaissance women did not have a Rosie the Riveter type figure to lead them in an estrogen fueled rage while they fight for places in democracy, working the jobs they wanted, and showing the power they truly possessed, so instead, women sat back and remained in solitude until the 1400’s. Their fight for independence was followed by a common theme. Women of the Renaissance were used as building blocks for women today that identified as a problem, solution, effect for the human rights crisis of blatant sexism. The things that these women accomplished during their time helped being a modern woman a little easier.
Disney has taken the well-intended morals out of tales with substance. In return Disney has offered relentless backlash towards the female race, making young girls everywhere self-conscious about what true beauty is. The youth are beginning to question the notion of beauty because they do not fit the stereotype of what they feel Disney is saying a princess is supposed to be. Looking at these tales as a standard of what love is supposed to be and what love should be is taking tolls on relationships. Marriages are failing and Disney is a prime suspect as to why.
It appears when an individual is evaluated on only part of their personality, and their accomplishments are trivialized (Sheehan 106) which is definitely what happens when women are made to believe their main value is their beauty. Body chopping or dismemberment is often used in the media and leads to the perception of a woman not as a whole but by parts, moreover, negating her mind, soul and personality (Cortese 72). Such presentations show a woman with no personality and thus deny the value of their thoughts and characters and can lead to a lower level of self-esteem and a higher number of depression
All I had was my looks. So when I found out someone was prettier than me it felt like she was trying to take apart of me away. I was so lonely growing up, so as I got older I vowed that I always and will be the prettiest of them all. In the beginning, I just wanted to make a potion that would make her ugly. Anyway let me tell you my part of the story.
A. At workplace the counterparts always think with a female who quickly ahead in their career use their sex appeal to support them, it leads women to afford and work hard on themselves to be promoted in their career. “One of the reasons acknowledged by this society to explain the dissatisfaction women felt was Freud’s theory of the “penis envy” ( Freud, 1914) which affirms that women don’t accept the idea that they don’t have a penis and try to compensate this by attempting to be equal with men.” ( Lamb, 2002; 34).
