Jazmin Mcdonnell PSYCH 300 Tues 6:30-9:20pm The Hunting Ground I never thought of rape epidemic as how it was described in the movie, because that word is usually connected to deadly diseases, or out breaks. And it’s sad because being that I am woman I was always aware of sexual assault and how often it occurs to women in general but maybe its because unlike other deadly diseases that get broadcasted on every news cast imaginable, the subject of rape, or sexual assault is merely brushed under the table. This movie really opened my eyes to it all, you see because it’s the cultural norm I feel not only in America but around the world that rape or even sexual assault for that matter to not be taken serious in the eyes of the media, only
Throughout this documentary, viewers learn that many sexual assault cases happen on college campuses. However, many of these cases are often ignored by college administrators because universities want to keep rape statistics low and they have an financial incentive to do so. In the film it states that there are less than 8% of men in college that commit more than 90% of sexual assaults. This indicates that because
Sexual Abuse and Rape Culture Every year, rape costs the United States more than any other crime resulting in a total of $127 billion and $93 billion for sexual assault. Over the course of the past few months, we have heard numerous cases of sexual violence and abuse; these cases are astonishing because this is not something that should be ignored or dismissed. The stories told by victims have caught the attention of all people because it has become very prevalent in our society today. Countless women have been silenced by the authority of men, and these women have become too scared to speak out and seek accountability.
Recent headlines have highlighted the fact that rape culture is prevalent in our society, most noticeably on college campuses. To understand why this is a social issue we first have to understand what rape culture entails. Rape culture is a set of assumptions that reinforces male sexual aggression and disregards violence against females (Hildebrand & Najdowski, 2015, p. 1062). Simplified, it is an environment where sexual violence is normalized and most of the time excused. One out of five females in the United States are sexually assaulted by a male at some point in their lifetime (Hildebrand & Najdowski, 2015, p. 1059) and college aged females are four times more likely to be a victim of rape than any other age group (Burnett et al.,
In closing, you can see that music and the character 's expressions affected the movie by focusing on the mood of the story and demonstrating some of the important things that the people in the community don 't have. Music was used to show the mood of the story throughout the movie. It was also one of the things that the people in the community didn 't get to enjoy. While it had a major role in the movie, it was only a minor role in the book. Music wasn 't really mentioned in the novel.
A haunting reality is that women are considered lesser than men on a daily basis. Rape culture is a serious issue that is hindering women and girls at school or in the workplace. Dress-codes are creating a halt in girls’ education and women are not being paid the same amount for the same work. Although women may get hired more often in the case of wearing more revealing clothes to a job-interview, it is truly disturbing that women only have the same opportunity when they are seen as sexual objects. Rape culture in the education environment and the workplace needs to stop.
The documentary called The Hunting Grounds, had multiple concepts that relate to sociology. Using a sociological perspective, it was very prevalent to see the ways college campuses use patriarchy and gender stratification to keep women who have been sexually assaulted on campus from disclosing information or even getting help about these issues. Through the discrimination against women at these gender institutions the women formed a Feminist movement to bring awareness and help to the victims on campuses all around the world and to stop the assaults from reoccurring. The Hunting Grounds is a documentary that reveals the untold stories of women on college campuses and how these women have fought to have their voice heard about sexual assault on campuses. Sexual assault and rape on campuses has always been a major problem for colleges all over the world yet very little has been done to protect the students.
In The Toughest Job: William Winter’s Mississippi, viewers are introduced to the background and political career of former governor of Mississippi, William Winter.

Specifically, in Edward Scissorhands, the fighting scene where Edward and Jim were in Edward’s attic and in the background, the music was loud and fast to show that it was a fight scene and that someone was going to be hurt or killed. Music changes throughout a movie to capture the mood of a particular scene and to evoke emotion from the audience. In Edward Scissorhands, the suburb is associated with lighthearted music and dark gothic music is associated with Edwards home, the mansion. The lighthearted music gives the audience the illusion that the suburb is happy and safe and the dark and eerie music gives the mansion an illusion of creepiness. Music can also relate to sounds in a movie as sounds can be used to have the audience hear if it will lighten up the mood in a scene or make the scene seem scary and eerie.
At some point of your life you meet very special people that carry very similar interests. This creates bonds that can be a very powerful and important part of your life. Some may say that bonds are created between a series of negative events that leads up to friendship. However, this is not true because in The Way, the main characters come together to walk the same path. Each character motivates each other to achieve the overall reason of why they wanted to walk The Camino De Santiago. Emilio Estevez’s purpose in creating this film was to show how different types of people with different backgrounds can mesh together and motivate each other. In The Way, Emilio Estevez uses the literary devices such as characterization and conflict to get
There are many problems on college campuses and several go unnoticed.

The United States is facing a growing problem that shows no signs of slowing: sexual assaults on college campuses. Possible reasons for this epidemic are explained by Janet Napolitano, the current president of the University of California. She describes that “young adults live independently and in close proximity to one another for the first time” while attending college (Napolitano 387). The college setting provides students with opportunities to take advantage of one another. As a result, sexual assaults have become an issue across universities in the United States.
Unfortunately, not every student will have a positive mindset or respect of others. Nowadays, the most assaults happen on a college campus and this is a serious issue that can be prevented. Research claims that, “Eighteen percent experienced an attempted and/or completed sexual assault since entering college.” (NSVRC) On an average, that is one in five students worldwide, but we can make those numbers decrease greatly with a
