Juliet lives in a time when women were oppressed. They were “expected to focus on practical domestic pursuits and activities that encouraged the betterment of their families,” (www.encyclopedia.com, 12/03/2017). This gave them very little to contribute to the society. Women in the 50’s could work but they were paid much less than working men were paid. We can observe that the theme of gender from Shakespeare’s play, plays a part in the 1950s as women in this time were reverting to their lives before being able to be in charge of mechanics, and other things that were considered a man’s job, showing the role
Nowdays in an era of technological advancements, such as TV, smartphones, tablets, etc. All of this has made a huge a impact on media, and marketing, and social interactions.

(1977-1980) were all popular television shows that presented Latino men in a positive light, they simultaneously propagated stereotypes.
A woman could work just as hard as a man but sadly most people in the 1950’s could not see that. In any job or sort of work, a woman will be treated as if they are less than a man or a “second class citizen” just because of their gender. Girls who want jobs and to earn their place in society will soon see that this was a hard thing for a woman to do. The women of the 1950s though must tell them to stand up for themselves for that is the only way that they can climb in society and defeat the “suburban housewife” mold that will try to be shoved upon them.

In our modern society, for better or worse, television has become an integral part of American life.

For example, in the passage Johansson states: “In discussing ads with young women in Beijing and Guangzhou they sporadically referred to the Western models in the ads as 'hao piaoliang’ (real pretty) or 'zhen meilide’ (so beautiful), and explained that the large number of Caucasian models as a simple matter of them being beautiful” (Johansson 381).
