For example, in this quote, he compares a news reporter to a judge, “For millions of Americans the network reporter who covers a continuing issue -- like the ABM or civil rights -- becomes, in effect, the presiding judge in a national trial by jury”(Agnew.) Making this comparison helps the audience understand how powerful news reporters are, therefore, proving Agnew’s initial statement about the television reporters’ capabilities. He also makes an analogy within the

Kingsolver uses media in the book to show how women are over sexualized. Kingsolver shows women treated and seen as objects that are used for others’ gain, not as individuals with their own thoughts. There are also examples where the women are mentally and physically abused, and the consequences of these problems. The Bean Trees is a novel that questions the treatment of women and girls in not only the time it was written, but even in today’s society where many of these issues are still present. Kingsolver wrote her novel to spread awareness to the discrimination and injustice through a cohesive narrative and her characters’ development to connect to her
Modern Family is a popular primetime television show that airs Wednesday nights on ABC. This hit comedy presents the daily lifestyles of three separate but related families who reside in the suburbs of Los Angeles, California. The Dunphys are shown as the traditional white American family while the Pritchett-Tucker family are a homosexual couple with an adopted daughter named Lily. The Pritchetts are the last family who are an interracial couple with a large age gap. On the surface, this show seems to be one of the most diverse on television.
Not only women have been objectified, but also the average female reader has been forced to face an unrealistic misconception towards the female body. In Grace Bai’s article Ad Bank Semiotic Analysis: Cosmopolitan and Maxim Magazines we encounter the stereotyped female figure and how contemporary advertising customs create ultra sexist notions
It depicts a strong female character defying societal rules and pushing past discrimination to pave the way for equality. All of the sociological Schools of Thought can connect in some way to this photo; Feminist Sociology clearly addresses gender in society, Structural Functionism often denies issues like sexism, Symbolic Interactionism is represented through the media role and the legacy of ‘261’ in sports, and Conflict Theory describes feminists fight for power in a patriarchal society. Moreover, Conflict Theory suggests that society structures itself on the imbalance of groups competing for power. This connects to the fight for gender equality that had occurred between men and women, especially in North America, during the 60’s. Inversely, socialization is apparent through gender roles determined by not only culture, but societal influences and social development, and the “acceptable behaviour” that results from this process of learning through influence.
He drags you in as if a TV show left a cliff hanger after ever episode. He knows exactly what happened to Michael so well, and he times it all so well into one story. A great piece from the book that shows how descriptive and emotional he can be is when he explained the fight between Michael and his teammate. “Force equals mass times acceleration, as Hugh Freeze said, and when Michael’s mass comes at you at Michael speed, it’s just an incredible force.” (Lewis 289). Another great but very emotional moment in this novel was chapter eleven, “Freak of Nurture”.
The Odyssey by Homer contains multiple moments where female characters are oppressed or fit into a patriarchy, but there are several moments where these character show signs of rebellion against this oppression. Applying a critical lense of feminism to these characters and relationships create complexities and conflicts within the novel that shine meaning on the world. The character Penelope offers many of these moments. Analyzing the actions, situation, and comparisons with other characters using a the feminist critical lense will show a more enriched version of Penelope and offer a deeper insight of the patriarchy, and how is affects the world. To accomplish this analyzation I have structured this paper into an intro paragraph, four body paragraphs, and a conclusion paragraph.
cultural constructs of femininity, identity, and the extent of government control. The story explores the affects social and political trends have on society. The Handmaid’s Tale evaluates gender roles and the subjugation of women. Atwood’s use of aphorisms, symbolism, and allusions urges readers to examine the juxtaposition of cruelty and vulnerability in femininity. Throughout the novel, aphorisms play a large role in depicting the role of women as subservient to their male counterparts.
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)’.
She gets on the phone and asks Jake what he’s wearing and it shows man in the office at 3a.m. and he responds “Ughh khaki’s”. This commercial was one of the most popular commercials of all time based on how an insurance company could somehow sell their product in a funny way and also shows that State Farm works at all the hours of the day to benefit their customers. When you think of insurance it sounds like a very boring and dry subject but this commercial made State Farm not be boring in the viewer
