She argues that it is possible to frown upon pornography and also defend one’s freedom of expression in the society; which seems to be guaranteed in the First Amendment. In addition, Jacoby is determined to show how individuals need to take the so called “healthy and holistic” view of the censorship without taking rigid stances as either pro-First Amendment or ant-First Amendment. Her less important conviction that the First Amendment should be upheld in the society without the regard to the context of expression and freedom has little appeal to the feminists. She even admits that she is criticized and ostracized by many women meaning that her First Amendment isn’t that important to them. Susan Jacoby finds pornography offensive in the society, although she stoutly opposes the idea of censorship on
Commonly referred to as the “roaring twenties”, the 1920s was a crucial period in the changing role of women. No longer a dainty housewife, the Jazz Age woman was independent and ambitious. In “Bernice Bobs her Hair”, F.

Cheryl Dunye, a screenwriter, film director and actress, has created many films that fit under the genre of new queer cinema. Most of her films explores the intersections of sexuality, race and class and how it shapes black women's sexual identity.

After 8 months, Agostino Tassi is released from prison and eventually comes back working for Artemisia’s father (Guerrilla Girls).

Chicano art possesses a true aesthetic, mirroring a diverse and ever-changing Chicago reality. Today's Chicano art is multipurpose and multifaceted, social and psychological, American in character and universal in spirit. Chicago is considered as people's art movement, outside of museums and hierarchy, so it continues to establish radical or protest art.

Chicano art can be expressed as the experiences Chicanos went through by deciphering codes in images, signs, and symbols.
Self-portraits are not meant to be interpreted as unbiased opinions of the subjects’ basic physical appearance. This, however, does not make them deceptive or untrue. Instead of merely showing us what these people look like, self-portraits express the endlessly complex facets of a human’s soul. They show us the things, people, and qualities that the artist valued. Dürer embodies Christ to exemplify the power of the artist and their divine ability to create, to make something where before there was nothing.
