Many girls dream of their knight in shining armor, a perfect wedding, and a happily ever after ending. Disney princesses give them hope to find love and happiness along with emphasizing their want for the beauty and grace princesses illustrate. Authors of “Cinderella and Princess Culture” and “The Princess Paradox,” Peggy Orenstein and James Poniewozik respectively, agree that most girls like princesses. However, these articles convey differing parental opinions on lessons girls learn from princesses and the unfavorable effects this has at their young age.

In contrast, The Dressmaker does contain strong lead roles, however majority of them being female rather than male. This modification present in The Dressmaker encourages the theme of women’s empowerment showcased in the story and overall engages a modern audience with its contemporary approach to a current issue. Another theme that is also addressed in The Dressmaker which is not viewed in Spaghetti Westerns is the theme of domestic violence. Both Molly and Marigold are understood as being victims of abuse under antagonist Evan Pettyman. Nevertheless, identical to most Spaghetti Western conclusions, it is the protagonist who triumphs and the antagonist who catches defeat.
Our take on Macbeth is solely based off the wildly popular movie Mean Girls. Although the two are completely different genres, they have an extremely similar storyline when examined closely, and for that reason Macbeth can be integrated into the Mean Girls plot. The characters in both Mean Girls and Macbeth can be seen mirroring each other, whichever both stated characters’ traits that are possessed. For instance, Cady represents Macbeth for the reason that Cady too was attempting to take the power from “King Duncan,” or in this case, Regina George. Janice could potentially be seen as Lady Macbeth, as both are pushing for their counter characters to finally reach the point of power.
It doesn’t only matter what a woman says and how she performs but what dress she’s wearing, if she looks tired, what her hair looks like, and inevitable what man is standing behind her. This scene was so powerful because as women it is something we are dealing with every day and where some shows would shy away, Shonda brings it to the forefront. Finishing out the trifecta is How to Get Away with Murder. This is a newer show created by Shonda, only in its second season. Each character in this series is so different, so unique.
He also showed how women were sexualized, misbehaved, and evil through the behaviors of Dracula’s three daughters. The ideal woman can easily be turned to the dark side and become a threat to society which Stoker showed with the character Lucy Westenra, as she went from being idolized to a sexualized, evil,
This shows Lady Macbeth going through lengths just to become royalty and this shows she is ruthless because she is only thinking about herself. Besides, the idea of dashing out the brains of a child deliberately shows Lady Macbeth is willing to killing her own blood, which is cold because usually mothers have a stronger and more intimate bond with their babies. Therefore, Lady Macbeth is shown as a ruthless person, who is very controlling, however there is a shift in her character at the end of the play, she becomes weaker. In the beginning of the play Lady Macbeth manipulated Macbeth into doing things he didn’t want to do, by targeting is insecurities (his masculinity). But, now her persuasion no longer works on Macbeth, for example at banquet Macbeth was acting crazy and Lady Macbeth challenging his manhood by asking him if he were a man.
He even had hallucination of the Dragger. Lady Macbeth was behind him for all those crimes. Macbeth easily tempted into murder to fulfill his ambitions to the throne, and once he commits his first crime and is crowned king of Scotland, he had to kill other people to keep his secret safe and to secure his throne and the moment of awful guilt when Banquo’s ghost appears and also his lady’s death seems to give away the misery. These reflect the tragic tension to Macbeth. Macbeth cannot maintain his power because his increasingly brutal actions make him hated as a
The difference, however, is in the way she possessed and utilizes this image. With a clear awareness of male desire and sexual politics, the Princess and her companions plot and play with their admirers, turning every situation to their own advantage. While still subject to a patriarchal structure that pushes them to take part in courtship and eventually get married, the women of Love’s Labour’s
Yet, Radcliffe’s precocity to feminise the genre is not limited to her treatment and coverage of women’s sufferings and fears. Susan Becker further explained that her “earl[iest] twists in the feminisation of the Gothic, namely [is] in the reduction of the villain, otherwise subject of the action, to a mere function in the female subject’s transcendence of ‘her proper sphere’: the home” (“Postmodern Feminine Horror” 79-80). Striving to liberate them, Radcliffe’s narratives took the shape of suspenseful mysterious narrative of Romantic journey in which the ‘travelling’ heroine-centered narrative “who moves, who acts, who copes with vicissitude,” escaped, even temporarily, from the patriarchal confining house (qtd. in Hanson 37). Radcliffe writings opened floodgates for her female successors to write within that tradition.
Marriage being a key element of being a woman and a successful housewife whilst being pure. Esther Greenwood, the main character of the novel, goes through different psychological changes where there s a shift in her view of what makes a perfect housewife; innocence, purity. This idea is challenged within the text where it openly rejects traditional marriage and motherhood. It has also been challenged for it’s characters discussion of sexuality (Sheila). Where Esther she was beginning to lose control, feels the double sexual standard and finally what everyone does in her age is the continuous search for
Monica wanted to come clean because she heard of a story about a boy who committed suicide because he kissed another boy. She knew the feeling of being shamed and wanted to commit self harm over something that was turned on her. Bill should have been the one in trouble and got all the attention for cheating on his wife. So out of all of this i feel like Bill Clinton was one of the worst presidents to ever take office. As you can tell by all of these scandals and him even getting impeached.
Jack tried to murder Ralph because he had power in the beginning of the story and Jack’s envy of Ralph had grown ever so greatly.
