I believe she was confident because in paragraph 12 it states,” She crowned herself pharaoh with the large red and white double crown.” Hatshepsut had to be confident to crown herself pharaoh especially that a female pharaoh was not even heard of in ancient egypt. Previously stated in paragraph 9 it states,”It was a job, perhaps just fifteen years old had been training for since her earliest days by her father's side.” This shows she must be confident to be taking such an important role only fifteen years old. In conclusion Hatshepsut was very confident and bold in her decisions which made her a great pharaoh. Hatshepsut was a great political leader who inspired people today like Angela Merkel who was the first female chancellor of germany. Hatshepsut inspired women's right movement.
She showed intelligence when she was second-in-command because she had grown to the top of pharaoh. Hatshepsut showed intelligence in paragraph eleven, when the author states, “A few women had tried to rule Egypt before, but never with such a valid claim to the throne or at such a time of peace and prosperity.” This quote states that Hatshepsut was better than the other women pharaohs and was smarter. Another way that Hatshepsut showed intelligence was that she could have expanded Egypt’s borders through war and conquest. In paragraph seventeen, the author states, “Instead of expanding Egypt’s borders through war and conquest, Hatshepsut built monuments within her country to proclaim its power.” Hatshepsut had a choice to start a war that would last a long time or do something not related to a war. In conclusion, Hatshepsut was a intelligent person when she had different decisions to make and many things to do before becoming
In this passage, Cassius Dio characterises Cleopatra as a young, charming and intelligent woman who uses her beauty to captivate and manipulate everyone around her. Dio says that Cleopatra is a powerful and influential queen “with the power to subjugate every one” who takes her role seriously. Cleopatra meets Caesar only because she is Queen of Egypt, and to prove her majesty she takes great care in her appearance, equating her beauty with the right to be Queen. Whilst Dio positively describes Cleopatra’s physical appearance, he writes negatively about her scheming and manipulative personality. Cleopatra takes great thought to her actions and consequences.
Cleopatra’s Influence on the Roman Empire Cleopatra VII has become one of the most well-known ruler and Egyptian in era of the Roman Empire because of her suppose beauty, cunning personality and her influence on the Roman Republic which turned into an Empire shortly after her death. While she is not Roman citizen herself, her relations with Julius Caesar and later Mark Antony are what brought her influence of power into Roman society and expanded her own in Egypt. Just like any ruler in history she sought power which was not something easily done as a woman in that time, however primary sources such as Josephus and Cassius Dio often do not refer to her as a great ruler, but as a seductress
She cannot pass for white or “other” and lives with two other women. Although being related to Gloria she works as her maid and helps clean her messes, both literally and metaphorically. Vera wants to be a successful actress but because of her skin color, it is difficult. Her only big break is when she plays the slave Tilly in The Belle of New Orleans. She was nominated for an Academy award for best supporting actress, making her the first African American woman to receive the honor.
Kaiylah Mercado Cleopatra’s Legacy Cleopatra VII Philopator was the last pharaoh of Ptolemaic Egypt. I chose her because I believe that many women pharaohs are interesting in different ways. Also, while men are believed to be “superior” to being ruler of a kingdom or country, I believe that women should be treated equally, just like Cleopatra was. In final, she did not use her beauty to her advantage. In fact, she had a strong intellect, knowing about a dozen languages and being educated in a variety of subjects.
The artist wears beautiful and extravagant dresses that are clearly able to showcase her wealth. Taylor swift uses exactly twenty outfits, however, there is one specific outfit that stands out because it is different from the girly, posh look that the singer always goes for. This outfit consists of a leopard print dress and some ankle strap heels. This print is unusual for Swift because leopard print is seen as more mature and less like the girly way she likes to portray herself. The leopard print may symbolize the media’s view on her preying over men, or it could also mean that she is a “crazy cat lady” that will end up unhappy and without a man.

Beauty and vulgarity focuses on certain groups in America, this is not an issue in the others with beauty standards, but it is prejudice to others that expresses them.

Kylie has took characteristics that was vulgar for an African American woman to have and made it a trend to other white
My topic for this semester’s 1960s Multi-Genre Research Paper is Marilyn Monroe, who was a famous American actress and model that affected America’s pop culture immensely. Her influence can be seen today in various media across the globe. Monroe was essentially one of the strongest symbolism of free love and the era’s attitude towards sexuality. Although she died at a young age of 36 in 1962, her death still remains a common debated conspiracy around the world. Therefore, the reason why I find this figure interesting is the fact that she is portrayed as someone contrary to my personality, and through her popularity I would like to understand the stories behind her massive success instead of generalizing it based on common opinions of her from
