The author Mary Roach shares her knowledge of the dead in the book “Stiff, The Curious Lives of Human Cadavers”. Roach is both the narrator and character in the book. We discover that she struggles with the choice of whether and how to leave her body to science. The book is gross, graphic, and somewhat humorous as it provides medical and scientific information on the dead and how their bodies are used for science, medical research, and other studies. Mary Roach divided the book into twelve chapters.
Prostitution is now typically viewed as an urban problem, but it was pervasive and generally accepted during the expansion of the American western states where 1 in 10 women were prostitutes. As thousands of men trekked westward in search of riches they were followed by many prostitutes. In fact, the term “hell on wheels” originated from the ladies who followed the Union Pacific railroad workers in wagons. However, the primary factor behind the tremendous demand for prostitution was a very disproportionate male to female ratio. For example, in 1860 there were only 30 women in the silver mining town of Virginia City, NV with a population 2,236.
Ever since the early 18th century with the cases of the “wild beast” many cases have come and gone but some have gained popularity in the talks of society. Such as the Edward Theodore case in 1957. Edward Theodore Gein was born on August 27, 1906, in La Crosse, Wisconsin. Growing up Gein was devoted to his mother until she died in 1945, and he then became increasingly deranged and started to go to cemeteries to unbury recently buried female corpses. As soon as he unburied the female he would cut off body parts and keep them as trophies, then put the rest of the corpse making it seem as if he never dug it up.

Jessica Mitford takes a bold stand against the funeral industry and states that people are “blissfully ignorant” (Mitford 310) on preserving people.

And since the customers in strip clubs are also men, the idea that “men are more powerful and dominant than women” is further reinforced because they are the ones being served at in strip clubs; they were the ones paying the female strippers. These lead men to treat women as weaker and lower than them. Prostitutes and whores are words which pertain to women who do this kind of ‘job’. In countries like the Australia and New Zealand, the term sex work is the most accepted term they use to pertain to this kind of job, however here in the Philippines, the term prostituted woman is used to pertain to those who strip and dance in strip clubs (Ditmore 2006).

The body of the unfortunate girl was duly dissected, and no one remarked or appeared to recognize her” (The-Body Snatchers 11).
