She is saying her dream of a better world allows women to be celebrated. How softball being re-added to the Olympics would create a better world for women. These two combined are effective in the sense that she is creating passion and using her bias in an effective way. She is using her love for softball to tell them she isn’t the only one who cares this much, but that there are millions of others like her. She wants the audience to know how much this affects her and many others like her who are passionate about the sport.
Artemisia was a fresh perspective and an inspiration to women all over the world. She didn’t let pain and hard life experiences control her. She took control and looked for way to use her talents to change the world. Her paintings and character inspire women today to know, that you can push through pain and paint beautiful pictures even in dark
I find Hepburn fascinating for similar reasons I find Rodriguez. Hepburn challenged the status quo and won. She had an immensely successful career but she didn’t bow to the Hollywood smut machine. When I say this I am talking about her ability to say shove it to all the Hollywood pressure and decrees for women to be dressed and visualized as sex objects. I think it is amazing that Hepburn said no and relied on her amazing natural ability to act to be a successful woman in Hollywood.
Hester became known as the woman who was able to do anything. In the beginning the scarlet letter represented adultery and shame, but then the A represented “able.” Hester Prynne showed people that greatness can come out of huge mistake. One bad chapter does not mean your story is over. Willingly, Hester wanted to pick herself up again and move on with her life and eventually people noticed that. They began to respect her and think of her as strong and commendable
However, in the film she uses her words and her femininity to corrupt Beowulf and in the process she merges with the other female characters. The decision to do this means she is humanised and sexualised in the interest of adding psychological depth to her character and also to emphasise her feminine power. This is seen to make her more believable to a modern audience and therefore makes the film more profitably commercial. Bill Schipper comments on this aspect by claiming 'nothing terrifies a male audience more than a physically and sexually powerful woman' which Zemeckis capitalises on by using Grendel’s mother. Her monstrosity is convincing despite this overt sexualisation as William Brown states by
Janis when against gender roles to challenge the norms of society, and as a result her rebellion became significant to the public. In a way, she became famous by shocking and surprising people, and as a performer she captivated and moved her audience through being original. When it came to women’s roles in society, there were very specific expectations that women were meant to follow. During the women’s liberation movement Janet was seen as a kind of model in which women began to mimic. Sexual liberation was another movement that was taking place, in which sexuality became a large part of self-expression.
The author reveals that a woman's search for identity is complicated by over-sexualization, toughened by the doubt of others, and completed through her mental perseverance. Firstly, the author represents how a women’s search for identity is complicated by the sexual references directed to Cheryl within the novel. Cheryl encounters many different people on her journey and while so many of the people she meets are good and have good intentions, the
Jane Evershed is one of those people that has the ability to speak through her artwork. This is a wonderful skill to have, as a picture is worth a thousand words. She speaks most openly to women, those who may or may not have endured the discrimination, oppression, sexual assault, and abuse from loved ones or society itself. Society makes it harder for women to accept themselves as they are. They come in all shapes and sizes, ethnicities and backgrounds, religions and sexualities.
Through the process of analysing these works it is apparent that there are still many unresolved gender and social issues in the world. These works provide evidence of the way in which women experience the influence of the male gaze on society’s perception, attitude and behaviour towards women. There are similarities shared in all countries such as the victimisation and objectification of women. By using unconventional methods of visual communication, the artists discussed successfully creates awareness of such issues, hoping that same will be acknowledged and addressed by people. The fourth artwork considered is that of body artist Regina Jose Galindo’s ‘PERRA (BITCH) (2005)’.
The play allowed the transmittance of a social movement through conveying the emotional and logical retrospective analysis of the cruelty befallen on women from these ideas, providing a completely new perspective to society. The theatrical work of art caused a surge of rights activism, such as George Orwell’s 1984, initiating the start of cultural calibration to present day society where equality is sought so profoundly. The use of art in this context allowed the de-escalation of gender bias, contributing towards women’s expanded freedom and therefore showing the possible necessity and value of the arts despite the lack of physical application in the
The speaker Elizabeth Gilbert did a wonderful job of delivering her message through her down-to-earth, comical attitude, passion, and confidence is her words. Her message, just as I mentioned before, was directed towards artists about how society puts such massive pressure of artists of every kind, especially in the case that these artists become very successful, explaining how we should view artists and all other people as having their own genius, rather than labeling select people as brilliant or amazing. She expresses that is the world develops this new view, then maybe it will level the playing field, and relive the wight off of so many of our
These girls were brave enough to shared their stories with an audience that was interesting in listening to their pain and suffering behind a monument that gave them the courage to speak out. In regards to Wodiczko’s comment it was less embarrassing for the girls to share their stories behind the monument than to talk one on one with a friend or family member without having to worry about being judged, sympathies or just being asked every second if they were okay. I simply loved the idea of the monuments because as a stranger I felt each artist 's pain and
