Body image issues stem from the need that some women have to be accepted within the society, their struggles with acceptance may lead to them having distorted body images where even if psychologists give them information to counter their image they are unable to embrace themselves. This may result in the women doing things that compromise their health and in extreme conditions it may lead to death. The signs that a women with a negative self/body image may display are avoiding social situations due to their appearance, always wearing heavy makeup, believing that they would be happier with themselves if they change the way they look and believing that the way she looks prevents her from doing certain activities. These ideas thus increases the women’s body image anxiety especially around people who are unfamiliar to her or people who are said to be
In fact, the level of sexual desire fluctuates between all of the characters. Hippolyta reveals in her response to Theseus that she too cannot wait until their wedding night, but she is far better at hiding it. It, however, is not the case that women are forced to hide their sexual wants due to it being considered ‘unsuitable’ for women, as can be seen in the case of Helena and Demetrius. Helena is far from afraid of announcing her affections for Demetrius to him. It is a form of sexual harassment, and Demetrius is far from giving into her wants, and even goes about warning her from spending too much time with him unsupervised: “You do impeach your modesty too
This comical situation demolishes the morals that women claimed to have in their relationships and expressed that as shallow, clueless, and untrue to their word. In addition, making the girls so stuck on the name of a person highlighted the illogical impression that religious purposes were the only reason women chose to marry a certain man and depicted it as rather foolish. Sarcasm is the primary technique used here as Wilde jokes on the “morals” of women during that period. Once again, Wilde doesn’t provide any solution to his opinion on women or the standards of religious purposes. Instead, he exposes the flaws and leaves the audience to question the
Some experts consider that in this case decriminalization is the best strategy, but it should be an advantage for women, who, no matter which way you look at it, are entitled to exploit their own bodies as they want. However, they also claim that pims, customers and other people involved must be punished, as only such kind of strategy can restrain the growth of demand and supply in sex industry. Another negative aspect of legalization of prostitution is that it can promote sex trafficking. The example of Netherlands show that 80% of women were trafficked from other countries, and most of them were from poor countries of Eastern Europe (Raymond, Janice G.). Moreover almost 80% of women involved in sex industry in Germany, the country, which legalized prostitution too, came from South America countries.
However, some may argue that the reliance on sexuality does not celebrate a women agency because it is demeaning to women and prolongs the stereotype that women are just eye candy/sexual objects. I do not agree with this because everyone has the right to do as they please with their body as long as it does not harm them or society. In my opinion, sexuality is not the most significant aspect of the femme fatale characters, it is the emotional manipulation. 2. After reading chapters 1 -12 I concluded that Cora is indeed a “femme fatale” because she is both sexually attractive from Frank’s perspective and has a habit of complicating things for the men who love her (Frank Chambers
Those differences are not easily dismissed… however those differences do not condone gender discrimination in society, and certainly not in the workplace.” (Malkin, 2005) Women mostly have unequal access to health services and education, face glass ceiling at work place. Social customs that force or encourage girls into early child bearing and teenage marriages have dangerous and direct consequences for their health. There are much high levels of brutality and violence against women almost in all nations around the world. This could be among their families where it is treated a normal custom. Violence, in the span of armed conflict, is used to humiliate the rivals and also to undermine resistance and
Nevertheless, empowerment does not seem to be interchangeable both ways. Despite being able to incorporate menswear into womenswear for something more androgynous, it is hardly recognised amongst men to adopt the essence of womenswear and to merge it with menswear -- for men. It is easy to envision masculinity being tied to the female body, but not otherwise as it is something embarrassing for a man to be seen as ‘effeminate’. This is also probably why women seek to find confidence and empowerment through various sources, if potent parts of the gender norms were changed especially in such a sudden manner, “the public reacts as if basic gender conventions are being threatened” (Paoletti and Kidwell, 2007). Yuniya Kawamura (2005) argues that clothes are just clothes, it is but a tangible material product, while ‘fashion’ is much more: it is a symbolic product.
Social comparison theory also plays a part on how being perfectly thin connects to body disatisfaction. The theory propose that individuals are always self-evaluating and by doing that, they matched their appearance with the others’. The negative effects could be initiated by introduction to media image throught the process of social comparison (Tiggermann and Slater, 2003). Women disappointed themselves while assessing their own appeal and find out that they cannot match what the media portrayed. As these pictures appear more and more, they might get into the sub-conscious part of then brain, concequensly, body dissatisfaction can
A lot of questions arise with respect to one’s morality and values. The job is so dejected by the culture and the people that one has to even skin their profession from their own relatives and even the loved ones. The moment one recognises a Sex Worker is the moment that can destroy one’s career, one’s social life and even the peace of mind. The manner in which one tackles with the complications that tag along the label of a sex worker is also interrelated to the kind of background one comes from. It would be an easier task to answer a society that can be really open-minded and western to accept a woman in a pleasure seeking job to make a living but to the same within a society that satisfies the younger generation with an response like “A child is born with the God’s Grace and nothing more”, sex education and sex as a profession cannot really be seen as an option!
The logical is something like ‘’if men can become women, then nothing is certain”. So they feel attacked and they react by lashing out. It isn’t the trans people that are terrible, it’s nothing about them that is terrible that causes people to act this
