It seems that in today’s society we take for granted that a woman can hold important seats in Congress or the Senate, be the head of a Fortune 500 company, or even President of the United States, but it wasn’t so long ago when it was almost unthinkable for a woman to achieve any of these accomplishments. And despite the vast progress women have seemingly made, a great more work remains before we can assert gender equality. Gender inequality happens on not only on an everyday basis - but in our literary world as well. Today’s modern society contends "on the archetypal level the journey to self-discovery is the same for both the male and female hero”(1), but story narratives that embody male and female experiences differ in important elements

Cleopatra and Joan of Arc are two of the most powerful and influential women to ever have lived.

Throughout time both Joan of Arc and Cleopatra have been documented as extremely influential characters in history.

Anna Goldsworthy writes in the introduction to her Quarterly Essay, that it’s never been a better time to be a woman in this country ‘on the surface’. Despite the hegemony of females to crucial positions within government, large business and greater education, women are still held to incredible standards in what Goldsworthy marks as an ‘image-centric culture’. Before I read the essay, I thought it was going to be solely based around women in politics, but it wanders off into the general area of sexism and misogyny where she Goldsworthy starts writing about how the female is viewed in common society, and then further away into Gonzo porn, online culture, typically associated with teenage women and their image and how they are viewed online, and also how women may go out and correct their flaws by makeup and plastic surgery. Goldsworthy begins her essay here with Gillard 's speech, now referred to as simply ‘the misogyny speech’, it was a hit out of Abbott and his associated endorsement of ‘sexism and misogyny’. She identifies that Gillard’s speech was a detour from the safer and more common female politician’s tactic of ‘cop it and move on’.
Model’s have an interesting role in today’s society. They are often viewed as your typical tall, skinny, shinny haired, perfect woman. Commonly, today in our society beauty is not based on health and youth, but rather a tall slender figure.

Cameron Russell is pegged as an incredibly beautiful woman.
Some Experts’ Opinions You might see him on Fox news or maybe shouting in a courtroom, the adjunct professor from Georgetown, Dr. Michael Sheuer, or simply, “Mike”, has major concerns about the way American’s foreign policy has been handled in recent years. The choice isn 't between war and peace. It is between war and endless war , in this age of warfare, the purpose of conflicts that our leaders drag us into, become uncertain as the deaths multiply. Mike has a valid point. During his career running operations in the CIA, the Bin Laden case is a standout, so it is important that people of opposing views at least take a minute to consider his steady, keen outcry against the way American leaders deal with foreign allies.
Schulman became the highest paid lawyer at DLA Piper in her time working there. Although the case study never specifically talks about Schulman’s salary negotiations I find it hard to believe this happened without Schulman negotiating her raises and asking for more. I think this reinforces the idea that a leader must be assertive in getting what they need. In the case Schulman talks about how to be a successful as a woman, one of the things she stresses is the need for women to transgressive in their professional careers. This fits perfect with the information stated in the article that although women may be viewed negative for asserting their desire for a higher salary it is necessary to get the salary the desire.
