Tyria Wickliff Kathy Hayes College Writing 101 D 27 September 2017 Depictions of Women In the Media The media plays a major role on how some women view themselves in real life. They start to see whats accepted and whats not through society which causes them to mimic what they see women doing in the media.

In the play A Midsummer Night’s Dream, Shakespeare uses the power of sexism to express the idea that when it comes to love men hold all the power through Titania and Oberon, Egues and Hermia, and by using some situational irony. Stereotypes and myths are normally what create most of our problems today.
In Bell’s research, the society has a strict standard for young women, which requires them enjoy sexuality, while do not donate too much of their trust in men.

In this section Kinsman writes on the issue of the negative social construction surrounding homosexuality. To begin his section of the text Kinsman criticizes and analyzes Marx and the previously mentioned Engles experience and perspectives, which influenced their stance on gender and sexuality.
